"she was old old old. she said she'd die one day. but, see, how did she make the food hot? and how are you supposed to know what should be hot and what shouldn't? 'cos sometimes we had ham. cold. and sometimes we had bacon. hot. and when you buy it they don't tell you which one is which. i thought they would. i've been buying it, but i don't know what to do with it. what about lettuce and cabbage? what about hot chicken and cold chicken? and i'm sure we had cold potatoes once, but they're not like the cold potatoes that you buy in the shop. they were horrible, the ones i bought. i think i bought hot ones by mistake, but they were cold hot ones. i get muddled. i got muddled when i ate them and now i get muddled when i buy them. i feel very muddled."
