Not heard in Glastonbury

Posted by Simon Parke, 28 January 2019, 8.42am

Heard in Glastonbury high street, mother and small child:

Mother: Hurry up, Ronnie! We’re going to Jenny’s for lunch. You like going to Jenny’s for lunch.

Ronnie: No, I don’t.

Mother: Of course you do. Jenny’s lovely food, it’s different and it’s good for you, you like it!

Ronnie: No, I don’t.

Mother: Don’t be silly, you know you do.

Ronnie: No, I don’t.

Mother: And then afterwards, if you’re good, you can play with Luke, and you like Luke.

Ronnie: No, I don’t.

Mother: In their big garden… you like their big garden with the peace zone.

Ronnie: No, I don’t.

Pause.

Mother: Ronnie, hurry up - or we’ll be late for Jenny’s!

We’re not always heard.

We don’t always listen.
