I am a worse cook in my dreams than I am in real life. A few of nights ago I had a dream where I was a cook in a school canteen, and one of the meals I was preparing was macaroni and cheese, topped with hair clippings from the barber’s shop next door, and hair from the beard of a goat “to enhance the crunchyness” as someone else in the dream said.

It’s weird seeing things like Gluten-free products in supermarkets overseas. Of course there are Gluten-intolerant people in Germany, Spain, Japan, Bolivia or wherever. But, a little thing pops into the back of my head, just for a fraction of a second, to say “but surely they aren’t that fussy here”. It’s weird how the idea, held as truth by people of my parents’s generation and perhaps a little younger, that all food allergies were just people being “fussy eaters”, has left a little limbic trace in my mind.
