The Girl can be very soppy, and she often comes up to one of us randomly and says the like of the first sentence below…although we don’t generally respond toher crawly-bumlick-ness!
TG: Who’s the best mum in the whole wide world?
TG: Ok, who’s MY best mum in the whole wide world
Me: Well, I assume it would be me
TG: I DO have a stepmum, but she’s not my real mum, so she doesn’t really count. dad can marry a whole string of women, and they will never be my real mum, cos that’s you.
Me: Erm, yes.
TG: and you will be there no matter what, whenever I need you, whatever I need you for
Me: Yes, of course – but you’re never going to NEED me darling, you’re going to do just fine.
TG: I might need you one day
Me: What do you think you might need me for
TG: Well, maybe one day I’ll need to go somewhere and wont have any money for a bus or a cab
Me: You want me for Oyster top-ups?!?
TG: No, don’t be silly, I wouldn’t want money – I’d want you to give me a lift!
Me: Well, i can tell you now, that isn’t goign to be happening! I’d rather give you the bus fare! Cheeky bint!
At least I know what I have in store for me I guess!
