If You Can’t Tell Your Asp From Your Elbow…

November 23, 2007

“That’s quite enough Snakes and Ladders

for one evening, admonished Mother,

dabbing at the puncture wounds on

my ankle. How about a nice game

of Hangman instead?”



Mom: Danny, what did you put in the trunk?
Seven-year-old boy: Don’t you mean, ‘Whom did you put in the trunk’?
