On Friday, a teacher at CIT confiscated a student's water pistol - yeah Canberra Institute of Technology, not the local primary school but I guess intolerant teachers crop up anywhere. Anyhow, by circuitous means the offending item passed into the possession of Brat junior.
"It's pneumatic," she enthused, "pump it up and hose 'em down at twenty metres. I'll load it with some pink vegetable dye and squirt the Sulphur-Crested Cockatoos when they chew our trees. Give the birdwatchers something to talk about, they'll be seeing Major Mitchell hybrids and aberrant sulphur-cresteds everywhere.
"Not a good idea," I growled."
"Then why are you smiling?" the artful brat asked.
"Get outta here before I thump you," I said. And so she scarpered.
