Conversation with Carolyn in my car yesterday:
—Richard, why have you got a cooking apple in your cup-holder?
—It’s not a cooking apple; it’s an eating apple.
—No way! What sort?
—It’s a cox.
—What?! It’s absolutely ENORMOUS! I’ve never seen a cox that big before!
—I don’t think you’re allowed to say that.
—[Howls with laughter] …But, seriously, all the other coxes I’ve ever seen have been absolutely tiny!
—You need to stop this right now!
