A barrel of good oysters, a couple of lobsters, and wine.

What were you doing on the 10th of October? Did you (have to) buy new shoes? Did you run into any friends in the street? Did anyone invite you to their house for dinner?

The Diary of Samuel Pepys: 10 October 1662:

Up, and between eight and nine mounted again; but my feet so swelled with yesterday’s pain, that I could not get on my boots, which vexed me to the blood, but was forced to pay 4s. for a pair of old shoes of my landlord’s, and so rid in shoes to Cambridge; but the way so good that but for a little rain I had got very well thither, and set up at the Beare: and there being spied in the street passing through the town my cozen Angier came to me, and I must needs to his house, which I did; and there found Dr. Fairbrother, with a good dinner, a barrel of good oysters, a couple of lobsters, and wine.

His feet, by the way, were so swollen because the day previous he had worn new hard boots which caused him pain. The things we do for fashion: Wer schön sein will, muss leiden (those who wish to be beautiful must suffer)!

Luckily it’s a proven fact that people who submit scenes on a Saturday are naturally beautiful. And wonderfully talented at photography, as well! Take a look:
