Invitation

Yesterday I met one of my Toyboys.  He was struggling home with a bag of charcoal.

“We are going to have a BBQ!” he said.

“That sounds like fun”, I said.

Quick as a flash he asked “Would you like to join us”?

Now this was a tricky one and needed careful handling.

“Thank you for inviting me, but there may not be enough food for everyone”  after a pause I added “I’m very hungry and if I eat your share….. then you would have to go hungry”!

He thought for a moment…

“OK!  I’ll see you tomorrow!” he said, then struggled off to catch up with his dad.

He was all of SIX!
