Very quiet this morning, he's had his breakfast now for a full five minutes and hasn't said a word. Sugar Puffs have done it, long live Sugar Puffs. But he's thinking, I can see it on his face, he's thinking!
"Mum, can we have Pizza for tea tonight?"
Wow, easy one. Definately the Sugar Puffs have it.
"If thats what you would like darling of course you can"
What the hell's going on here, one question, easy question, I wonder if he's ok?.
"Mum can we have Pizza and chips?"
"Yes of course you can"
Ok, now I'm getting scared, i'll take his temperature when he's finished his breakfast, he could take the day off school, wouldn't hurt, the doctors open at 09.00am could be there within 10 minutes if neccesary.
"Mum,where does Pizza come from?"
Maybe I was a bit hasty!
"It comes from Italy darling, which is a country in Europe"
"Is it a long way away?"
"Yes darling, its thousands of miles away"
"Thousands of miles?"
"Yes darling, its where lots of people go on holiday, me and your Dad went there many years ago"
I think he's ok, but i'll still check his temperature, things are too easy this morning somethings wrong, wonder if he's coming down with the flu, there's a lot of it about.
"Whats it like in Italy?"
"Its nice darling, very hot when we went there, the people are very nice"
"What do the people look like?"
Maybe he's getting better.
"Er they look like us really, but a bit darker because of the sun shining all the time"
"Do they drive motorbikes?"
Wow, how would he know that?
"Yes darling they do, they ride things called Scooters which are small motorbikes"
"Thought so and they're really fast on them aren't they?"
"Er yes, I think so,why all the questions about Italy and Pizza sweetheart?"
I hope I don't regret this.
"Well on the radio this morning there was a man saying that he would deliver Pizza to your door and if its not there in 30 minutes you don't have to pay, so they must go realy fast if they have to come thousands of miles on their little motorbikes!"
Phew, thank god, panic over he's fine. Bless him!
"Eat your breakfast or you'll be late for school"
