abracadabraD: Mum, did you know that a long, long time ago, the Plough pub used to be a school?

Me: Did it? No I didn’t know that. Did you learn that at school?

D: Yes. It was a very long time ago: Before G-G was born; before Jimmy was born; and before even Meggie was born. There was only ONE pub in Stony Stratford and the Government – he decided that the school should be turned into a pub.

Me: Is the Government a man then?

D: I can’t remember – I THINK I heard Mrs VR say he was a man… Is he a man?

Me: The Government is a group of people – so men AND women.

D: Oh. Well the Government all lined up then, and they turned it into a pub.
