Surreal conversation

Phoebe: "Emily, did you know that in Mexico people get married without any clothes on?"

Emily: "That is so not true, Phoebe. Have you ever seen Speedy Gonzalez without clothes? Have you? Well, then!"

"Come on Phoebe, choose your yoghurt and let's get home. The World Cup starts in five minutes."

"You men, you're all the same. Football, football, football..."

to the gym teachers at the Agios Kosmas sports camp (where the girls went on their annual school trip today) for not letting Phoebe play football with the boys in her class. To make matters worse, the girls were only allowed to play chase and do skipping (ugh!), which they could of course have done in the playground back at school (without all the parents having to fork out ten euro for the coach and entrance fee). Poor Phoebe had been looking forward to the trip for ages and had even got herself a football shirt so she'd be kitted out properly. Not surprisingly, she rated it "the worst trip ever".

Phoebe is going on a school trip.

"...and I had to decide who I'm going to sit next to on the coach Daddy, and there are lots of boys who wanted to sit next to me and I always sit with George or Spyros or Angelos and this time I thought I would sit with Antonis because he always asks to sit next to me and usually I say 'no' but the one time I said 'yes' he changed his mind and didn't sit with me and I had no one to sit next to so this time I made him promise that he would sit next to me and so that he won't change his mind I wrote a contract and made him sign it so now he has to sit next to me!"

Poor boy. I feel quite sorry for him...

Phoebe is attempting to decide what she will do when she grows up. "I cannot make up my mind, Daddy. Should I be a scientist at NASA or should I have a Karagiozis puppet theatre?" She thinks for a moment. "I know! I can do both!"

"Perhaps, darling. Although probably not at the same time..."
