An interesting exchange I had today
In the Waterstones in Walsall.
I was approached by a young girl, about five years old (I suppose. I’m not good at guessing that sort of thing). “I’ve got new shoes” she announced, with all due solemnity.
“Have you?” I replied.
She beamed, and nodded her head with eagerness and enthusiasm.
“They’re very shiny,” I noted.
She returned to being solemn, and after considering this for a moment nodded her head in a very sage sort of way, as though we’d both given each other something very significant to ponder.
Then she wandered off back to her mom.
