Middle Class Protest Angst

Riding the local Berkshire lanes with Charli and continuing a discussion we’d been having about protesting, she confessed the following dream:

‘We were at a demonstration. The police attacked with tear gas. You yelled at me for onions. I panicked and yelled back: “I only grow shallots”.’

Onions are a counter to tear gas. Charli does grow shallots. We are middle class.

As a coda to that tale, Charli did admit she woke herself up from the dream laughing.

Just in case you need it: The Freedom Manual

shallots, not onions

No, we need onions
