To hell with it! Especially on Bastille Day! I will no longer be gathering the Wild Blackberry in quarts. That particular pathetic measurement for Blackberry is about as bland as is the name Hope for a Seal Island Puffling. Instead I am going to work on the principle of a basic quart type measurement that I will call "A Dog Tic Ton."
There will be four "Dog Tic Tons" to "One Lone Star Tic Tonne." And here, the
observant might recognize a curious conjoining of Imperial and Metric, for which
there was a reason, but at the moment that reason eludes me following heat
stress on brain cells. Then while gathering Blackberry, if ever two Lone
Star Tic Tonnes are achieved it will from henceforth be called "A Drunken June
Bug," because one "Drunken June Bug" is sufficient Blackberry for
six jeroboam of the wine.
