My run ended back at Tidworth with 15 minutes to spare. I scored a liter of cranberry juice at the supermarket then, with 10 minutes till the next bus (2 hours and 10 minutes till the one after), I popped into the Superfry chippy. With 5 minutes to spare, the owner emerged from a back room or upstairs or somewhere other than the front and I asked for a piece of cod.
“I’ll cook one fresh, just 5 minutes.”
The bus was 5 minutes late. The fish was very tasty and, starved, I finished it with 2 minutes to spare.
