Wot no bananas?

Don't get me wrong, I'm one all for localism when it comes to politics, and one of my favourite Tory MPs (I have a scrap book of photos of all my favourites and their election literature), John Penrose in Weston Super Mare is a big proponent of localism, but Sunday evening I had some devastating news.

I was sat in the window of Sweaty Noras Greasy poon [sic] eating my beloved banana sandwiches (two slices of white bread with thick margerine, a sliced banana with a spoonful of sugar dusted over the top) when Nora came over and had a chat.

Ludlow is well known for its 'slow food' movement, buying local, enjoying local food, she said, and that is to be applauded. However, she explained, as she was thinking of switching over to the slow food movement herself in the café, there might be some trouble giving me banana sandwiches in future, as she didn't think she could source them locally. She's going to look into things and get back to me to see if there's some work-around for this problem.

Reader, I'm worried. What will I do without bananas?

Take your own bananas to Nora's cafe. She may just charge you for skinnage.

Hmm, this indeed a tricky problem. Steve's suggestion of B.Y.O.B. (bring your own banana) is a good one. Alternatively, might there just be a supplier of hydroponically grown bananas somewhere in the locality?

There must be some way around this problem. It is too terrible to think of you pining away without your banana sandwiches ....
