Overheard: Thanks, Dolly!
American TV programmes are very educational … it seems.
Cue: the anklebiters are role-playing an episode of Hannah Montana, where Dolly Parton plays the grandmother.
They are using walkie-talkies. #1 is upstairs and #2 downstairs.
#1: Crackle! Buzz! Shock! The walkie-talkies don’t work, but that doesn’t stop the kids from shouting to each other.
#2 – my son (listening intently): NO! I don’t want your fizzy balls.
I’ve got my own!
#1: But grandma’s fizzy balls are even better!
Thanks Dolly for that! Bath bombs will never be the same again in this household… As someone once said about America and Britain: We are divided by our common language.
