I was reminded today of the first time I was patronised by one of my nephews or nieces.
My brother and sister-in-law had come to visit with my eldest nephew, then aged about two and a half. My nephew's favourite thing in the world was cars, so when I saw that there was a Lamborghini parked outside my flat, I took him outside to have a look.
I held him up to look over the wall and said, "Look, a racing car."
With great enthusiasm, he exclaimed, "Oh yes! A wacing car!"
After we had admired the car, I put him down and he raced back into the house, shouting, "Daddy, Daddy, I see'd a Lamborghini!!"
