Snippets

Humuhumu, the bloke and I are at the table, finishing off breakfast. Humuhumu slips off to the sitting room. Suspicious noises are heard.

Me: "Baby, what are you doing?"
More noises
Bloke: "Pops, on a scale of one to ten, how naughty are you being?"
Brief silence
Humuhumu: "Six!"

Phone conversation, early morning of the second of my work days in London.

Me: "Oh, you're off early!"
Bloke: "Of course. We run a tighter ship when the Mama is away."
Me: "Oh really. What did you two have for breakfast this morning?"
Bloke: "....crumpets and mince pies."
