Oil on troubled waters

Many years ago I remember having a conversation with a certain young lady. She must have been about seven at the time.

“What’s that?” she said; remarking on the bottle I was holding.

“It’s Cod-liver Oil” said I.

“What’s Cod-liver Oil?” she said.

“Well … it’s for grown-ups … its good for you … and it tastes nice”

Ok, Ok that last bit may have been a slight exaggeration … but it is good for you!

Of course she wanted to try it.

After a rather large spoonful was dispensed I have never seen anyone move to the fridge and down half a pint of milk straight from the bottle so quickly.

As I tipped a few bottles of Cod-liver oil into the chum we were mixing the other weekend I couldn’t help smiling to myself as I was remembered that conversation.

On this occasion the Fulmars were much more appreciative.
