“Errr, well, err, a clapper? that’s one of those flappy, rattly things we use at music class.”
“no mummeeeeee, a SLAPPER” (perfect pronunciation from Toddler boy for this word).
“It’s someone who goes around slapping people hard, they are a very naughty person.”
“like (insert name) at school?”
“yes, that’s right….”
And yet again, I am praying for an inevitable situation not to happen…
Curse the youth of St Albans today and their loud voices, incessant talking (mainly swear words peppered with the odd verb) and lack or understanding of personal space.
