Holiday Conversation #5. Just because I can.

I was talking to Seven Year Old niece after we had just been swimming. Since Five Year Old's lips had started to turn blue from spending far too long in the water, she had been hurled from pool into the bath to warm up.

'Shall we take Monty (the lab) for a walk after we're dry?' Says I.

'Yeah!' Says Seven Year Old , full of enthusiasm.

'Well, lets go wait until Five Year Old is out of the bath and see if she wants to come too.'

'Ohhhhh nooooooooooooooooooooooo!'

'Why not?

'Cause she's so annoying.'

'But that's younger sisters for you. They're supposed to be annoying some of the time. I bet Mummy says I'm annoying, sometimes.'

Seven Year Old sighs wisely, 'Yes, she does.'

In fairness, you should have seen that coming.

As with the recipe, I can confirm that Laughy Kate is not making this up. Her big sister takes the same view of her as my big sister takes of me.

I think the technical term is a "dim view".

Tinman, you are so right.

Stephen, ah bless!

That's pretty cute. I'm reminded of the old TV show, "Kids Say The Darndest Things."

(Christ, I'm old.)

We used to get that show down here as well, Jayne!

Also the 7 year old would probably like some "special" time with her favourite Aunt.

laughykate said...

Oh, you're beautiful Countess!

That's what I like about kids, they rarely dissemble.

laughykate said...

Exactly, Fat Sparrow ! It's so very cool.

My six year old regularly calls me an idiot. Sadly, he's not often wrong...
