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.
“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”.
