We had a bit of an incident on our drive back from Scotland… Apparently it has to be known as THE CHOCOLATE INCIDENT. It is all in capitals to emphasise how serious it is.
Juliet: “Shall we have some more chocolate?”
Me: “There’s not a huge amount left actually.”
Juliet: “But I’ve only had a few pieces!”
Me: [pause] “Um… but it is split into lines of three. So, every time you have had a piece, I have had to have two.”
Juliet: [raised voice] “You have had twice as much chocolate as me?!”
Me: “No!” [pause] “I… may have had a few extra bits as well…”
Juliet: [silence for 30 minutes]
I think it is fairly safe to say it will take some fairly hefty present buying to get me out of this one.
