At the supermarket, I noticed this woman walking with her son and daughter. The boy pointed at a gobstopper machine and said: "I want one of these, mummy!"
His mum walked right past the machine.
We all got on the lift together to the car park.
On the way up the boy said: "I want a watch, mummy!"
"I want! I want!" I said to the boy. "Don't you ever stop wanting?"
"I just ignore him," his mother said.
"I want a watch, mummy," he said.
"Can you tell the time?" I said to the boy.
"Then why do you want a watch when you can't even tell the time!" I chuckled.
"Thank you!" the woman said. "Listen to the lady, she knows what she's talking about."
When we got out of the lift I waved goodbye to the woman and her kids.
I want, I want, but are you ready for it?
