Shop serenade

A strange man feels the need to serenade a random member of public in a check out queue . . .

MINDING MY OWN business as usual in the check out queue of a local convenience store I really wasn’t expecting a complete stranger to single me out and start serenading me.

Well, alright a middle-aged bloke in working clothes burst into verse with ‘roses are red, violets are blue – if I buy you a box of biscuits will you be mine too?’ While everyone else in the queue creased themselves laughing.

And since it had been the best offer I’d had all day I was sorely tempted to say ‘oh, go on then as long as I get to choose my own biscuits!’ But just smiled sweetly instead as he was forcibly retrieved by his unimpressed wife with child.
