And she understands builders

My sister just phoned to tell me about an elaborate game my niece has been playing this afternoon. My niece is Bob the Builder, my sister is Wendy, and the game involves each of them having something they can pretend is a phone. My niece then goes into another room and "phones" my sister by shouting loudly through the door into her toy phone.

In the first call, my niece said, "Hello Wendy. I'm just building a new play park."

The second call, a few minutes later, was, "Hello Wendy. I haven't finished the play park yet. I'll meet you at the pub in seven minutes."

Funny, the builders who worked on my flat a couple of years ago were just like that...
