So...,, I found myself eating a pickled onion in the shower today. Is it the weather? Never happened before. Am considering a glass of prossecco tomorrow. Is that strange? Hoping it is!

If this was Mumsnet rather than Gransnet, I can imagine what everyone would be thinking grin

Are you perhaps pregnant? grin

That's the one! grin

To be honest the shower is probably the only place DH could countenance me eating a pickled onion - he hates the very idea of them!

It’s very strange to be considering a glass of procceco 24 hours in advance, you’ve had the pickle now just go and pour a glass of bubbly . Why wait?

Artyfarty Be careful that the combination of pickled onion and prosecco doesn’t make you live up to your name wink

Jalima, am sure she has a cast iron stomach

The prosecco would be diluted if you really mean in the shower. I'd drink it before or after if I were you, or even right now 🥂

My thought exactly Baggs

Is there something decadent about eating pickles in the shower that I’ve missed?

Jalima1108 Fri 27-Jul-18 22:24:45

It depends on whether or not you're sharing the pickled onion OldMeg
I'll leave the rest to your imagination

I would have gone for a pickled shallot but would definitely steer clear of a pickled egg.

Where should pickled walnuts be eaten? If at all?

That reminds me of an episode of Steptoe and son many years ago when the old man was eating pickled onions in the bath! Dirty old man 😀😀🤗

How can you drink prosecco in the shower? Surely you’d be sloshing it all over unless you had one of those beer helmet thingies that fed it into your mouth via plastic piping? hmm

I’m overthinking this, aren’t I?

MissAdventure Mon 13-Aug-18 23:31:07

In short. Yes. grin

Nobody said the water had to be running whilst she was in there.
