chips and mayonnaise?

once when i was on a cross channel ferry back from Amsterdam,
a full moon, huge waves, i spent the whole voyage dashing exuberantly about the deck,
hurrah, hurrah for the King over the water,
at one point i was leaning over the side, pondering philosophically, gawping at the foaming wake.
At that moment an announcement came over the tannoy.
crackle hiss…. ‘DON’T DO IT. DON’T JUMP’ …splutter baffle
nearly made me leap right out of my skin. i looked up to see away in the turret a beaming big bearded cap’n Birdseye type,
giving me a thumbs up sign. ha. cheeky!
