my nephew held the inflatable globe in his hands and pointed at china.
my elder brother was alongside him: ‘oh, i’ve been there’, he said.
‘i have too’, my nephew said.
a little bemused by the lie, my brother asked him when he had been to china.
‘two weeks ago..’, he said. ‘i had prawn crackers and chicken chow mein’.
‘can i have some more sooty and sweep?’ (getting a little confused in his request for ‘bubble and squeak’)
