Boys allowed

boysallowedSon: If you use Finish Quantum, the glasses will be MUCH sparklier. Over 100 girls have used Finish Quantum.

Mum: Have they – no men?

Son: No, because it’s FOR girls.

Mum: Why is it for girls?

Son: There’s this advert and it says, “This is for girls and over a thousand girls have tried Finish Quantum”.

Mum: Why do you think it might be just for girls?

Son: Because it said it was just for girls. The boys weren’t allowed to see.

Mum: Everybody needs to wash dishes – dishwasher tablets are for boys and girls.

Son: Well, maybe I got muddled up with something else that was just for girls.

Mum: They might have just shown girls on the advert, which made you think it was just for girls.

Son: Well the advert had squares with people’s faces on there and there was just girls’ faces, no boys’ faces.

Mum: They’re naughty then – they should have had some boys in there.

Son: Yeah, boys HAVE to have tried it by now!

Oh – to be a woman!

tobeawomanMe: Did you know that today is International Women’s Day?
D: What’s International Women’s Day?
Me: It’s when women – across the world – celebrate being women.
D: Do mens have one?
Me: No.
D: Oh – that’s not fair!
Me: Well, a long time ago, men got to do everything and women didn’t get to do anything at all – so now that we can, we celebrate it! Men don’t need to celebrate.
D: But that was a long time ago, before I was born, so I didn’t get to do everything!
Me: You can help celebrate today – because you’ve got a lovely mummy who’s a woman!
D: Mmmmm… You know the Plough pub in Stony Stratford? Well, when it was ages ago and men got to do everything – was that when the Plough was a school?
Me: It could have been, yes.
