I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

Ah but that was the whole reason for the shop - paper and milk.

I got the paper and Mrs PN went for the milk and a few other items. Only as the heavy basket had been unloaded and scanned I asked where was the milk. Now having a long queue behind us (and 4 empty self-service tills) the solution is obvious. Mrs PN darts off to get the milk. When she returns I take the rest of the stuff to the car. Some minutes later Mrs PN emerges.
