Surreal conversation

February 07, 2006

Izzy and I are driving along in the car. Isabel suddenly pipes up, apropos of nothing.

Izzy: The white spoons are sleeping!
Me: (mystified) What white spoons?
Me: (repeats) Izzy, what white spoons?
Izzy: (crossly) I didn't say anything about white spoons!
Me: You did. You said the white spoons were sleeping.
Izzy: Oh, no Mummy! The wine screen are sleeping.
Me: Wine screen... (thinking) WINDSCREEN!
Izzy: Yes.
Me: (puts windscreen wipers on to see if that provokes a reaction)
