Tarts, anyone?

Julie was at her boss's leaving do. Her boss, Kathy, is Eurasian. As some of her guests gathered around the table of goodies, one remarked rather snidely:

"Eurasians make the best tarts..."

Julie who was trying the tart in question disagreed: "No, my Jackie makes the best tart!"

She wondered at the ensuing laughter.

(Just for the record, our Jackie does make the best tarts. Pineapple. It melts in your mouth)

Sometimes the most innocent comments are the naughtiest!

It's either too early in the morning, or I'm really slow. I didn't understand the story until I read Quilly's remark! Then, of course, had to go back and read the story again - and see that there was no 's' on tarts! NOW I can relate! LOL And now I need breakfast - have never had a pineapple tart - and it sounds really good!

Nessa: Really? It makes my heart go cold to hear that...but after the death of... I don't really have the heart for HP. But I'll read it anyway, if only because I'm a fan of longstanding (that is, before the movies)

Quilly: You bet!

Jackie: After reading your comment, I went back and re-read the story and realised it wasn't very clear. But I just had to write it. We now call Jackie a tart. Because she isn't.
