I was asked this recently by a friend*
*a nice person, but someone who clearly doesn’t know me that well because that kind of question would never come from someone who has seen me choffing ice-cream on the beach.
We were talking about food (as I often seem to end up doing) and they very seriously asked:
“Do you practice what you preach?”
Which struck me as an odd question and it hit me hard. In the gut. Like the thwack of a kipper.
So I answered, with a very serious face:
“No, of course not”.
