1 YEAR OLD GEORGE
2 YEARS OLD EWAN
Ewan: So Grandad has left us in charge of his blog and a major news item has just come along. What do we do George?
George: Not a lot. News? Goes in one ear and out the other with me. Have you ever in all your long life, and you’ve been around longer than me, heard a news item that made a difference to your life.
Ewan: Suppose not. You are very astute for a little one.
George: Excuse me, do you mind, less of the little please. I spend hours a day eating to make me a big boy.
Ewan: Sorry George, it really is working well. You are enormous for your age.
George: I see the news item mentions Pressident Trump.
Ewan: I think there is a new law that says every news programme has to mention President Trump.
George: I don’t understand why. Grandad says you and me could make a better job of being President of USA than him.
Ewan: I hope that doesn’t happrn. I think I’d have to leave nursery and I’m going up to a bigger room.
George: But the White House where the US President has to live has loads of rooms, all bigger than your nursery rooms put together.
Ewan: No George, “bigger room” means bigger age. I wouldn’t want to miss out on the challenges of dealing with and controlling the older kids at nursery to be president of the USA.
George: No I agree. And I wouldn’t want to live in a boring White House.
Ewan: I suppose we could colour it in with our crayons and felt tips.
George: Make it a Red House, Blue House or Pink House.
Ewan: Or a Rainbow House.
But it still does not answer my question. What do we do? We are left in charge of Grandad’s Blog. A news item has come through that we know would amuse him. His objective is to have an entertaining blog.
George: What’s the worst that can happen if we run it?
Ewan: Grandad tells Mamma what we’ve done?
George: Let’s do it.
Ewan: Let’s, here it is.
“The former undercover CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson is looking to crowdfund enough money to buy Twitter, so Donald Trump can’t use it.
Wilson launched the fundraiser last week, tweeting: “If @Twitter executives won’t shut down Trump’s violence and hate, then it’s up to us. #BuyTwitter #BanTrump.”
The GoFundMe page for the fundraiser says Trump’s tweets “damage the country and put people in harm’s way”.
As of Wednesday morning, she had raised less than $6,000 of her $1bn goal. By Thursday morning, the total had risen to more than $40,000.”
George: A bit unexciting really
Ewan: Yes, I’m so bored I’ve gone to sleep.
George: Can you talk in your sleep, then.
Ewan: I can do anything in my sleep. look, I just close my eyes and do anything.
George: Wow! You’re so amazing, Ewan.
Ewan: Bye, Bye.
