Pause For Thought

On an interminally long bank-holiday bus ride through Bristol I eavesdropped on the conversation of two four-year-olds on their way back from the zoo:

"Keira why do you always want to sit next to your mum?"

"Because I love my mum. But I'll sit next to you on the train. I mean, I might."

"Do you promise to sit next to me on the train?"

"Stanley, I'm thinking about it."

Keira, you're a hero. We can all learn something from you. Although on the way off the bus Stanley stopped in front of the driver to say "thank you for the ride", so we can all learn something from him as well.
