More gems from the TYO. He dislikes tickly labels in clothes and was having trouble with something in his T-shirt. His mum asked what he was doing. ‘I’m just unitching myself,’ he said.
And another: He had made an unidentifiable construction out of Lego. I asked him what it was. It turned out to be his magic go-away machine. Brilliant, I thought – the times in my life when I could have done with one of those! Turns out he meant some kind of teleporter, not what I was thinking at all…
(Ah…you knew that, of course you did)
