In Which Youngest Knows His Stuff


Middle Son asked me in the car today,
'Mum, what is the best time of year to go skiing?'
We all had a good think about it. Good question and all that.
'Um,' I said, in a thoughtful sort of way, while I Perused the Answer.
Youngest piped up.
Chest puffed up with Knowledge and Wisdom.
'I know,' he said, with a winning sort of a smile.
We all looked at him expectantly.
'Winter,' he said.
Knowingly.
Got to hand it to the boy.
He knows his Onions.

I was only wondering the other day when they would be holding the Winter Olympics. I got some great long odds from the bookies for July.
Fingers crossed!?!

It's always important to have someone in the family with enough brains to know the answer.

It is rarely me.
