My head is full of cold. I’ve got a sore throat. Am feeling very sorry for myself.
There is only one thing that can save me.
I stumble through to the larder in my dressing gown and socks (it’s not pretty) and the horror of the situation slowly dawns upon me – I don’t have a tin of Heinz Cream of Tomato Soup, that age old remedy for all known illnesses.
How did this happen? I always have a tin of tomato soup for emergency situations like this.
I’ll have to resort to runny eggs with buttered toast fingers instead – not quite as efficacious, but a reasonable substitute as a cold remedy.
In an emergency.
