Me And Some Mushrooms

On my recent trip to Italy I passed a pleasant day in the medieval city of Lucca where I beheld the most glorious display of mushrooms…

the color, shape and texture of the mushrooms bade me to click away…

I suppose I was intent on photographing the amazing display since I knew that a purchase was not practical…

as I clicked, I looked forward to downloading the images and saving them for my future enjoyment…

I nodded politely and smiled broadly at the couple selling the marvelous mushrooms…

I wandered around a bit and returned to await my friends when a shopkeeper came scurrying toward the cart waving a piece of cream colored paper and sporting a few pieces of scotch tape on her fingers.  To my horror and amazement the message she attached to the cart read:

Chagrined, I searched in the bottom of my bag and brought out the requisite euros apologetically handing them over the mushroom people!

this little guy witnessed the entire escapade…
