May the Horse be with You


Earlier this week Sally came rushing from the kitchen where the radio news was blaring, to find me.
 "Mum, Mum, guess what I just heard on the news.
Terrible horses have killed thirty people".
"Terrible horses?"
Slowly, the cogs of my mind started turning until the penny dropped.
"Taliban Forces Sal, Taliban Forces".

  3. Oh my. That's funny. I love a post like that - simple, unexpected and, at the end, I'm laughing.

  4. bahaha! That's great. Reminds me of the time my niece told me there was no way she was eating sticky tape pudding for dessert - it was sticky date! And she did end up eating it...
    Glad to know it wasn't terrible horses too. That wouldn't be great :)

  5. gosh they are funny....today Georgie answered the phone when I was away, she told me that a man called Mad Cow wanted to talk to me...it wasn't until we followed the crumb trail of caller ID that we worked out that it was in fact a Mr Keough! (who was quite amused by his new title!)

  6. Ha, cute - and understandable. Thank heavens her world has horses at its centre, so that's what she 'hears'. Time enough yet to worry about the evil in the world.

  7. Too funny, I wonder if she imagined a group of horses or just single ones in different places going on a ramapage.
