joseph says.. #22

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’)
