I love baguettes, but I forgot all about them for so long.
Ok, they have their downsides – they’re not the easiest thing to fit in your shopping bag, and they go rock-hard if you don’t eat them within 5 minutes – but on the whole the French are to be applauded for this invention.
So this is my plan: Get up early tomorrow, go down to the supermarket, buy fresh (still warm!) baguette and a big lump of Edam, then go home and eat it all while reading the paper. That’s a fairly simple plan, but it is very civilised.
