    Dill pickle

    Hi,Curious Cat and everyone

    Do you remember I asked a question on Dill Pickle last year?

    I have two more questions:

    No.1
    Is dill pickle common food in English speaking countries? I ask the question because there is a sentence 'although she was not certain what a dill pickle was'. If she didn't know it it seems it is not common.

    No.2

    How should I understand the two characters? The woman, sentimental. The man selfish. Is that right?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    1 In the UK, we have it, but it's not that common.
    2- I don't understand- what's the context?

    In the US, dill pickles are extremely common, and are automatically given on the side when you order a hamburger or delicatessan sandwich in any restaurant.

    Dear tdol,

    It's from the short story 'Dill Pickle' written by Katherine Mansfield. The whole story is difficult to understand, not the language but the two characters.

    Dear Quisch,

    Thank you very much for your reply.
    It's so interesting to see there is so much difference between American food and English food.
