A sudden gush of wind flew past as the trolley barrelled away, powered by the eight year old boy who seemed to have lost control over the vehicle which had so tempted him to ride on. "Oh, my gosh, that nearly blew me over," came a disturbance from the third tier of a shelf, "I could've made a mess of myself over you all." There came many sighs and complaints. The entire condiment aisle had witnessed the incident. Not to say that this was unusual, this type of incident occurred more often than one would normally be able to put up with. Already this day three deaths had occurred, when an elderly woman had attempted to reach for the pickles on the top shelf, only an attempt it was, for she had not reached her goal but sent three jars of mustard to their numb demise.

She lusted after a life that would be filled with surprises, bursting with passionate flavoursome conversation. Anchovies did not share the positive attitude, obstinately claiming that she had been spoilt by this occurrence. Several of his eyes rolled over in their jar."Anchovies, dear chap, what in the name of the queen is that brown, wriggling object next to you there?" Many curious eyes turned to discover just what it was that English Mustard had so keenly noticed."Ah-ooooooooooh! Eeeekkkkk!Urghhhhh!" Shrieks came from all directions, as the "wriggling thing", a cockroach, sniffed its way past anchovies and ascended the racked shelves.No, cockroaches are not received with warm welcomes in the supermarket aisles.
