just call it like it is

Dear Restaurants,

Please stop listing your fruit salad as "seasonal" when it obviously isn't. Victoria in July produces some lovely seasonal fruits: strawberries, blueberries, cherries, raspberries, even some early blackberries and transparent apples. This would constitute a seasonal fruit salad, and I would certainly pay more than $2.25 for it.

Bananas, grapes, melons and pineapple do not constitute a "seasonal" fruit salad anywhere. Bananas, to the best of my knowledge, are not even seasonal. The others may well be, but not here, and not generally with each other.

There is nothing wrong with just calling it just a "fruit salad". Fruit salads are nice. They are a refreshing part of a complete breakfast. But a regular old fruit salad with stuff from Ecuador, Hawaii, California and possibly Florida is NOT BLOODY SEASONAL.

yours truly,
the only person on the planet with a bee up her bum about this.
