I heard a mum call her son an idiot yesterday and I thought, “She must be worn out!”
I told her I heard her and then immediately realised I probably shouldn’t have told her that.
She smiled and said, “I wish you didn’t hear that!”
I replied, “It’s okay we all do it and then we instantly feel bad – you must be human!”
If she knew about Sparky and Shady I could have said something like, “That’s your Shady, just say, ‘Shady I love you but that’s not helping’. Now listen to Sparky and do what he or she suggests.”
Oh btw – turns out he left his soccer shoes at home so she had to turn around and drive him all the way home to get them!
