Brevity

TomTom has to keep a daily holiday diary for school. Verbally he can be quite verbose. When a story can be told in 10 words, he’ll take 20, then repeat them in case you weren’t listening.

So we went shopping and walked for miles in Westwood centre, then drove to the Pavilion, looking for soccer collectable cards and an album. Plus we had Kentucky Fried chicken and a Tab, bought plasters for him and disprins for me. And he listened to music on his headphones in the kombi.

In his diary he wrote: I have soka cards frommy Dad. That was it.

Earlier, we had arranged to go to the Palmiet River*.  Aitch was out, so I told TomTom we should leave a note for Mom to tell her where we we’d gone.

He wrote a big note. It said (in glossy silver pen): We have gone.

On my insistence he added some detail:

And we well come back
