baby puzzler


I was in Tesco this morning and went to the flour shelf to get some Hovis Granary for the breadmaker. There was a woman with a pushchair looking at the vast array of flours on the shelf, deciding what to get. As she was standing in the way of what I wanted I waited for a brief while. She moved along slightly, still deep in thought, which left room for me to access my desired product.

Just after that, there was a moment when it was clear that she had come to a decision. And then… she put a box of eggs on to the shelf and strolled briskly away.
