Kids say the [unintentionally] funniest things… Wandering through the sublime Westonbirt Arboretum we come across three young kids playing among the trees. They all pick up sticks from the ground and begin waving them in the air. The first excitedly strikes a pose and exclaims…”I’ve got a sword!” The second yelps “I’ve got a gun!” The third looks briefly lost for options before saying “I’ve got a… stick.” He’s either going to become a stand-up comedian or I fear for his imaginative future.
They suggest kids’ attention spans are getting shorter and narrower all the time. I recently had a conversation with a lad at school and it went like this: “My nan has cancer… [and before I could even consider an appropriate response he follows it almost without a breath with] …my other nan has four houses.”
