Yesterday, while walking the Sydney Harbour Bridge and afterwards (photos to come), we heard a couple of magnificent comments from children.
From a girl about 10 years old, objecting to being told what to do by her father: “If you love me, you’ll stop being arrogant.” (I’m impressed that she knew “arrogant” at her age!)
And two girls, also about 10yo, chanting together:
We don’t do the dishes
Because we’re so delicious!
That’s a damn fine excuse for not doing the housework if ever I heard one. And they were as cute as buttons. I’d even have taken a quick photo except that in the 21st Century any attention given to someone else’s children brands you a paedophile. Bloody paranoia.
