Raccoon Shopping List

This list has been gratefully received as a donation. There is nothing very exciting about the items listed. Pretty much normal. Bread, eggs…

But wait… look at the other side of the note paper!

Raccoon paper!

Ñoqui = Gnocchi

Found in Waitrose, UK, this shopping list is bulleted with little circles prefixing each item. Blue pen on a back of an envelope.

Some interesting things here, not sure what the second item is, ‘Quealo’? Or the penultimate item, ‘Pilos’.

I had to Google, but Ñoqui is the Spanish spelling on the Italian Gnocchi. Very good.

Grocer’s Apostrophe

A5 Lined note paper with blue biro. Consistent use of the grocer’s apostrophe.

A grocer’s apostrophe is a spelling mistake caused by placing an apostrophe before the s of a plural word. In English, the plural form of a word is most commonly shown by adding an s to the end (e.g., “cats,” “bananas,” “pictures”). Don’t add your own apostrophe!

Not sure what Mary (Nurpac) is.
