eighteen to one

In deference to a wilting soul after an endless term I will leave you with this anecdote from my under-appreciated blog (not that I’m prone to exaggeration). Some children were drifting off at the end of the day. One of them was complaining that his parents never got him the Christmas presents he wanted.  “Well I don’t have to worry about that” interrupted another child “because I don’t have parents”. “You don’t have parents?” he was asked “so who loves you?”

There was an awkward pause as the boy searched for an answer. Just at that moment another child appeared and launched himself onto his back. “We do!” he screamed. Order was restored. Christmas was saved.

Happy Christmas all!
