Staying on holiday
August 19, 2012

D: I wish I could live in this country [Crete].
Me: Why’s that?
D: You get to hear the crickets; go to Star Beach every day; see if the cleaners have been; go to the mini market; have ice creams every day – even Scooby Doo ones…
Me: I wish we could stay too, but we can’t.
D: Why?
Me: I’ve run out of money.
D: Oh man! It’s not fair!
Me: You need money to stay here and I’ve run out. Have you got any?
D: Maybe they’ll let us stay here forever for free!
Me: that’s not the way it works.
D: …I’ve got the rest of my ice cream money?
Me: That’s not enough.
D: Well have you got some for half?
Me: Nope – I’ve got enough for tomorrow and the next day and that’s all.
D: It’s OK, because if we haven’t got the right money they’ll give us change!
