“The Champagne Of Concrete”
That was what Readymix trucks used to have painted on their barrels.
Two guys came this morning to pour three tons–completing a two year project of Charlie’s.
I discovered that my (visiting) friend Hilary harbors a cement truck er….fetish? Fascination?
Whatever it was, she infected me with it, and we watched every little step. Check out the fellow dangling inside the funnel, like a piece of pork about to get ground up. That was the first step: hang upside down in the funnel.
The guys were very quick, and had the grey ooze mixed and poured in about twenty minutes which gave me and Hil little time to get ready for a proper concrete tasting.
Too bad the slogan got tossed a decade or so ago.
“The champagne of concrete” has a nice absurdist ring to it.
So delightfully tacky!
Now it’s just “Rich Readymix”.
Did the A.O.C officials.in France raise an objection?
Never mind; to me, it tasted wonderful.
