OUT OF THE MOUTH OF

OUT OF THE MOUTH OF BABES…

‘ Are you going to come and see us on your own when you are a big boy?’
I asked our eight year old, French grandson as the family were leaving
He looked at me through his elegant blue spectacles.
‘But,’ he said blinking, ‘you are going to be dead.’

Children - can't shot them, can't kiss them in public in case you embarress them and destroy their "cool"

Cheers.
