On having no room at the north pole

Someone was telling me about a present they’re making for their grandson. It’s quite complicated and involves making various animals from different parts of the world. He’d just finished a group of baby seals.

“Are you going to make a big seal to look after them?”

“No. The North pole is full!”

On children and the effect they have on one’s ears

Way back when I was small, my grandparents used to take us (my siblings and me) on holiday for a week in summer. When my folks arrived to pick us up, the grandparents could almost be guaranteed to say: “rather a week than a fortnight” and “we’ll think we’ve gone deaf”. As a kid I didn’t really get what they meant. I mean, we thought we’d had a great holiday, and they agreed it’d been loads of fun.

I’m currently volenteering at a circus workshop for kid’s..

There are something like 130 5 to 13 yr olds and man are they LOUD!!

They’re also here for a week..

Obviously it’s not Friday yet, but when it IS.. I have a feeling I will have a better understanding of both sayings!
