Today’s prompt is:  A funny event in your life.

This happened 36 years ago and won a Radio 1 Tee-hee mug.
We were teaching the boys the highway code, the youngest aged 6, typically not interested and thought he knew it all.
So we tested him and asked what to do when you wanted to cross the road.
“You stop at the kerb and look right,” he said tiredly.
We nodded our approval.
“Then you look left.” he said.
Again we nodded for him to continue.
He sighed.
“You look right again, and if it’s all clear, you cross over.”
“That’s right. Well done!”  his Dad said beaming proudly.
“But what do you do if there’s something coming?”
The kid looked him straight in the eye and said
“You get knocked down”.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    It is a hilarious response, right out of the mouth of a six year old. They are precious our children.

  4. That’s the sort of person we need sorting out Brexit

    Very funny ( in 123 words). 🙂

    This is so typical of children. They can be entertaining and infuriating at the same time.
