So does this ring any bells from childhood?
Child 1 – “You’re a big smelly poo”
Child 2 – [say this part in a sing-song ‘nah nah nah nah’ child’s voice for maximum effect] “What you say is what you are”
Child 1 – Urgh no fair!
But it occurred to me the kids are actually onto the truth here! [Note my use of ‘the’ kids – you really have no evidence that it was my own kids having this high brow discussion during a boring, rainy half term!]
