Zoe wanted to go to see Eclipse with her friends, instead of going to a church youth pool party. She said she doesn’t care for pool parties ( a curmudgeon like her parents!)
“Mum,” she said. “This is not a blog post.”
When I was little, my grandfather used to say in his Bombay English, “See what answers she gives when she is 5. What answers will she give when she is 25?”
In Zoe’s case, I shudder to think!
