When I grow up I want to be an oporopolist

Another word of the week time.

Oporopolists sell fruit for a living.

Several years ago I was in our local Asda and I was checking how hard the plums were. For some reason Asda sells 'soft fruit' that is actually rock hard. Then Cathy turned around and said, in a very loud voice: "Jon! Stop feeling the fruit!"

Everyone present stopped what they were doing and looked at me.

I don't buy plums any more.

    Have to say I have given up on supermarket plums as I have found as often they are like bullets rather than fruit. When English Victorias are in then I buy them!
