The hunt for sweet senf…

So there I am, stood in Sainsburys, looking at the white Bratwurst on the shelf and im thinking to myself "Shame they don't sell sweet senf"; with a shrug I walk off.
The next day at work im chatting to Tony, he owns an Italian Deli in Basingstoke... and while he is at work cutting code his wife and daughter run I explain my sweet senf predicament and he tells me a "German Deli Van" turns up every Wednesday near Reading market... they might sell some.
Armed with this information I head over to the market and have a look around... I tell you what, Reading market is getting smaller, many empty plots ... and also no German Deli Van ... so I grab a bench and kick back with a can of Mountain Dew before heading back to work.
And then... it arrives... a beat up old van pulls up on the side of the road... and like some freaky movie where people appear from the crowd it gets descended upon by Germans... loads of them appear from nowhere... in suits, with kids, old, young, students, workers, house wives !...
It was really mad being in a van full of people speaking German (the driver is also German)... they are mainly buying German bread.
Still, they did indeed have sweet senf !… and in my best German I also ordered a large pretzel mit salz Smile


That evening the family dined on Bratwurst… and im pleased to say they all hate sweet senf so its mine, all mine ! mawhahaha lol !  result !
