One problem, three solutions

We were looking after our three five-year old grandchildren, and had just returned from a long walk along the beach.

I took off my shoe and saw that my big toe had pushed a huge hole in my tights

“Ooh, ooh!”….. I giggled…..

The three youngsters studied my foot for a moment before each volunteered a solution to the problem, each from his or her individual viewpoint.

Number One, ever the practical one, said:

“Perhaps you’ll be able to mend it?”

Number Two, the Forward Planning Expert said:

” I expect you have another pair tucked away in your bedroom drawer, don’t you Grandma?”

Number Three, the Retail Therapy Expert said:

“You can go and buy some more!”
