"There's a dead fish in my brain"

Early yesterday morning, as I did my usual morning stint of baby-sitting my nearly 3-year old grandson for an hour before taking him to the childminder, he said there was a dead fish in his fish tank. "You get it out, Granny," he said.

I told him that daddy would get it out when he came home, and said that he must remember to tell him that there was a dead fish in the tank.

"OK," he said. "Where shall I put the remember?"

That made me laugh. I tapped his head. "In here," I said. "In your brain."

When Lee picked him up from Donna's he ran up to him and said, "Daddy, there's a dead fish in my brain."

Well they say fish is good for the brain but that may be taking things too far.

Captain - very witty!

Debs - The word meters are our very own Captain Black's invention. I'm sure he'll send you them if you want.

Mother X - He's a little cutey.

Lane - You won't be able to miss me over a crowded pub! I've been trying to lose weight but have ended up putting on all I lost and a bit more from being at home eating chocolate all day!
