Madness Potato and Tarmac Salad

There are a couple of rules of communications that are unchanging and invincible: listeners never hear good of themselves; and auto-complete is your enemy. To these I add  two others: reading other people’s emails is never wise; and auto-complete can ruin any recipe.

Ramadan Sue shared with me an email exchange between herself and Tom. She had used her ipad to send Tom her recipe for Taramasalata. The dish became a Tarmac salad, in which one ingredient was described as madness potato.

“Do you suppose Liz was raised on those?” inquired Tom, replying to Susan. She did not show me her response.
