I’ve just had the following conversation with The Boy:
Boy: Mum I’m starving! Can I have something before dinner!
Me: Er . . there’s a big jug of homemade tomato and basil soup. Have some of that.
FX: THUNDERING ADOLESCENT FOOTSTEPS ARE HEARD RUSHING DOWN THE STAIRS. IF NONE AVAILABLE, SUBSTITUTE AFRICAN WARTHOGS THUNDERING TOWARDS A WATERHOLE
Boy: (OFF) Where is it?!!!
Me: In the fridge!
Boy: (OFF) What does it look like?!
Me: It’s a big jug filled with red soup and is sitting right in the middle of the fridge.
Boy: (OFF) Can’t find it!
