School dinner and brain surgery

D: I LOVE that type of fish we had at school today!

Me: What sort of fish was it?

D: You know the fish that’s crusty?

Me: Was it battered?

D: No, you know the one that’s a flattened circle?

Me: I think the menu said it was fish in batter. Was the fish inside, with a crunchy coat on it?

D: Yes – it was orange outside. How do they make it? Do they kill the fish, then make it into the crunchy shapes, then chop the tail off?

Me: Something like that!

D: Do they suck the blood out first?

Me: Yes, there’s no blood in it when you eat it.

D: And they take the bones out, and the inside bits out… Do they take the brain out?

Me: Yes.

D: Yuck! I’d like to see that. I’d like to try taking a brain out, just to see. I’d have to wear gloves though, because it would be all yucky. Not the gloves I wear outside though – that would be silly – gloves like in my science kit.

Fish reincarnated

D: There’s a game we go and play at lunchtimes sometimes – It’s like Fishy Fishy, but there’s an octopus and if you get tagged by it, you turn into seaweed and you float around and wave your arms like this..!

If someone touches you then they turn into seaweed. If the last person touches you or the octopus, they have to turn into one – and the winner is…. Mr Grice – he’s our PE teacher.

And there’s a song that goes with it: “Fishy fishy, swim in the sea, and get turned into seaweed with your eaten body, and get your bones turned onto the ground, seaweed, seaweed, see-, see-, see-, seaweed.”

Muscley hair

Me: You haven’t eaten very much and you haven’t drank your milk – where are you going to get your strength?

D: What’s ‘strength’?

Me: [Does an impression of a strong man.] Strong – you know what strong is.

D: OK, I’ll have some milk – warm though.

Me: Good.

D: Mum, does hair have muscles?

Me: No, but you can still have strong hair. Strong means it won’t break easily.
