Hot and Cold
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “An Odd Trio.”

It was the day after we’d landed on the Spanish Island of Eivissa. Dad walked us towards a local tapas bar near to the apartment we’d hired.
“They do really nice fish here – according to the guide” said Mum
Ever resourceful – she’d put our Beach towels on our seats
The waiter came out with our drinks , a beer for dad, a lemonade for mum and orange juice for me and anne-marie,
“Having a starter” asked the waiter
“can I have some soup with my sardines mum ?” I asked
Dad Smiled but I didn’t know why – “Er, Yes Please”
He returned in an instant with a plate of mushed up tomato, cucumber and onion, served with crusty bread
I needed Mum’s help to figure out how to eat it – I mean did I have the juice and miss the mushed up vegetables ? for a few moments – I was puzzled.
Now – Dad may have thought it funny – but I quite enjoyed the concoction – particularly when I mixed my sardines In with it , it was really tasty. And as the Spanish sun began to rest on the edge of the horizon it was really refreshing – perhaps that was down to the lemon juice in it – or the five ice cubes floating about the tomatoes!
As for the bones and the fish heads – the restaurant owners cat got those….
And I had no problem with the pudding – icecream set into an Orange…
