Thoughts on delivery-envy from Misha Herwin
Walking round the Oval on my way to post a letter, and do my daily exercise, I came across a delivery van. Back door wide open, the driver was unloading a neighbour’s on-line order. Seeing him carry the bags across the road, I was struck by a sudden burst of envy.
Why, I wanted to know, and indeed how, did they manage to get a delivery from a supermarket when, in spite of everything I’ve tried, I can’t get another slot. Not even for the end of the month, or beyond.
