英会話ブログ その498      Hyde Park (5)

2014/10/18

Naturally, I thought she meant, had I tried eating frozen peas after having cooked them first.  It was an awkward moment.  I wasn't sure what to say any more, so I just stared at her and her annoying litte white dog which was busy earnestly sniffing my right foot, probably wanting to pee on it !

She must have sensed that I just didn't get it. what she meant, I mean, by her question which had taken me completely off guard.  She hadn't even said, hello ! first. I had this dumb look on my face and she looked up at me and smiled at me like a kindergarten teacher smiles at a 5  year old.

" Oh, I'm terribly sorry !", she said.  " I'm a healer and frozen peas work wonders to reduce swelling and pain which you obviously have.  There's a supermarket on the other side of the park.  You can pick up the packages of frozen peas there !  Find a bench.  Sit down and stretch out your leg.  You can use your belt to fasten the boxes of peas to the sides of your knees.  Good day, sir ! "  Off she went with the toy poodle in tow.                               (V.C)
