"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Shopping For Shoes

________________

My sister is shopping for shoes.

________________

________________

Not for herself

But for her four lovely daughters.

________________

Perhaps to the relief of my brother-in-law,

This time, her shopping list does not include shoes for all ten of their grandchildren.

  2. Your sister cannot possibly have ten grandchildren. She can’t even have grown up daughters.

    • But she does indeed have both. And their eldest grand-daughter is already twelve years old…
