            Connor was practically drooling at the sight before him. The mountain of mashed potato, the vat of steaming gravy, the biggest steak pie in the world.  

            Dear god, he’d died and gone to heaven!

            When his plate was piled high and drowned in enough gravy to sink a small boat, he sat down to feast.

            Hot, buttery mash melted on his tongue, and he savoured every succulent morsel of steak. Gravy dribbled down his chin, but he didn’t care. This truly was pie perfection.

            “Connor!”

            “Whu- what?”

            “Wake up,” Abby ordered. “We need to gather more roots.”

            Roots?

“Oh, shit.”

Ooh, neat! I was smiling at the image of Connor digging in -- and then the ending brought me up short.

Oh bugger! *g*

And now you've got me craving mashed potato, so thanks for that! ;)

lol, I know. I thought of this one on the way home from work, and was craving steak pie by the time I got home.

Awwww!! *bump back to reality* ... (but I can't help hearing him say "gravy" in the same way he said it in "A Passionate woman" hehe)

Poor Connor, denied his feast. And lol, a Yorkshireman can't possibly have pie and mash without lots and lots of gravy!

*pets poor Connor* Roots are going to be even worse now he's dreamt of the real thing.

yep, poor Connor. He's probably not going to be able to stop himself daydreaming about that pie all day.

:-( Poor Connor. As if the coffee dream weren't bad enough. Poor guy. LOL!

I just had dinner and this was making my mouth water. Mashed potatoes is one of my FAVORITE foods of all time. Hehehehehehe

Coffee, pizza, pie, chips, he probably spends half his day thinking about food, bless him.

Mmmmm... can't beat pie and mash.

SHIT!
At first I thought he was going to be sick after having the first decent meal in a year. That would have been better than this. :(

poor Connor, I was mean to him again, wasn't I? I'm sure once he did get home he had a suitable feast the first evening back (and may well have then been sick afterwards!).

Awww, poor Connor! It's really not the same is it?
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 9th, 2011 12:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
poor Connor, the roots are going to taste even worse now, probably.
