[Against a backdrop of book-lined shelves-- the shelves found at Bilton & Scaggs, not the shelves in his living room, though there's a distinct similarity between the two-- Neil Perry is sitting, looking a bit sheepish.]

The bookstore did well yesterday, which I'm glad about. Really! But...

[And now, he chews at his lip.]

I think... I must have been cursed, badly.

[And he holds up a sweet potato.

In each hand.

From the large pile behind the counter, just offscreen. Not that you can see it, but from the expression on his face you might well guess.]


Can someone tell me how you're supposed to cook them? Does anyone like them? I don't really mind sharing... There are sort of a lot left over...

[And setting his sweet potatoes back on the pile, he picks up the camera to show his profits from yesterday.

Indeed, there are sort of a lot.]


I suppose, [he says from off-frame, bemused,] if you're interested, just let me know.
