Pledging allegiance

pledgingallD: Which country do I support at football?

Me: Err – our country? England?

D: No, I mean, like Manchester, or something? Jamie supports Chelsea.

Me: Ah, you mean which football team. Well, there isn’t really one that you support.

D: Maybe… Manchester?

Me: Manchester United? Your Grandad Bob used to support them – I suppose it’s as good a team as any to support.

D: Yes – I’ll support Manchester United then.

Me: Did you have your Harvest Festival Assembly today?

D: Yes – in the hall. All the food was put out on the tables in the hall. I could see my pot of fruit, but I couldn’t see my tin.

Me: Ah – did they put all the food together on the table?

D: Yes.

Me: And where’s the food going?

D: To those countries that don’t have any food. Which countries are they?

Me: Some parts of Africa, some parts of India…

D: Some parts of China?

Me: Possibly.

D: Some parts of Crete?

Me: I don’t think they’ll be going to Crete, I think Crete has enough food – it had food when we went there, didn’t it?

D: But there might be another part of Crete that doesn’t have food.

Me: True.

D: Where else? …Manchester?
