Plastic Tomato

For some reason, BetterArf has been hankering for a plastic tomato-shaped ketchup 'bottle', such as you might find in greasy spoon cafés in years gone by. I have no idea why she wanted to own such a kitschy object, but I wasn't too worried about this complete taste failure because she was unable to find one in Dubai. But she asked the daddy to bring one. He said he'd looked in about 11 different shops before finally locating the red and green object of desire.

BetterArf was delighted and spent a quiet half-hour spooning ketchup into it because we don't have a funnel small enough to fit into the hole.

On our travels yesterday, BetterArf was in Jumeirah Plaza. She found a shop that sells (normally tasteful) cutlery, crockery, pots and pans, and yes, you've guessed it. In the window they had a display of 25 plastic tomato-shaped ketchup bottles!
