Lucy and the cutting boards

3 12 2009

“What is this?” I asked as I looked into the freezer upon seeing some rather odd shaped pieces of wood.

“Cutting boards” said Lucy.

“Umm, yes, but why…?”

“To sterilize any nasties” said Lucy.

I knew that Lucy was taking the said cutting boards (fashioned from offcuts at a project where she had been working in Mozambique) back to the UK.

“So you think customs are going to take your word for this?” I asked.

“Yes” she replied with what I suspected was more optimism than she felt.

I was sceptical but the next day the cutting boards were gone and there were bottle gourds in the freezer. Customs did not even check her baggage.

Guess what, they are back in my fridge, they started going mouldy (grey and fluffy)… probably caught something foreign in your freezer!!
