457. Just popping to the shops
© Bruce Goodman 10 January 2015

I’m just popping to the shops to get a few things. Anything you want?

Not that I can think of.

We need some wine and some onions. I can’t think of anything else.

Yes, just wine and onions. Have you made a list?

I don’t need a list. It’s just the couple of things.

Take the phone.

I’m just popping to the shops. I don’t need the phone.

Yes, but if you break down or have an accident, you can call.

It’s just to the shops. It’s only ten minutes’ drive.

(30 minutes later)

I got some potatoes, but I couldn’t remember what else we needed.
