BUS RIDE SCENARIO
Mum and 2 cute Asian daughters
board the 91 bus at Woking
(the latter both under age 6)
both girls turn looking around.
The words: ‘Mummy, Mummy,’
speaks the eldest curious child
‘One of the girls at school said
something to me today, and she
called me names in the break’.
Oh did she, says mum continuing
to look out of the bus window but
without reacting to the words.
Yes said the curious child, she
called me, ‘Poopie Head’ at which
Mum’s face turns a bright red,
as the rest of us await a response
After the pay load is dropped off
there is a noticeably short silence
packed with a pregnant atmosphere
as the child continues. ‘Mummy what
is poopie head. What does it mean?
All ears attune for the reply.
