I was at a local market yesterday to buy 1lb of Cod at a good price. (As an Englishman and a one time Massachusetts resident I am crazy about Cod.)
The mid-twenties fishmonger asked for my order. I replied "1lb of Cod please".
He responded "did you say Cod or Salmon?":
"Cod" I said.
The young man countered with "I thought you said Cod, but you were looking at the Salmon".
I retorted "I asked for Cod, and please do not mock me because I am cross-eyed".
He "got" my huma. He could scarcely weigh my Cod for his laughter!
LUVIT! ( I used the cod today to make some Codfish cakes. Yum. yum!!)
