So, last night G says to me “Do you know where the middle one’s school jersey is?”
(He actually said “a bheil fios agaibh far a bheil geansaidh aig middle one?” but I didn’t know what a ‘geansaidh’ was so I just stared at him blankly until he repeated the question in English).
“I don’t know.” I reply “He got changed as soon as he got in, so maybe the hall… floor?”
G departs for the hall.
Here is what subsequently went through my head:
“Oh… good. G has identified that the middle one’s jersey is missing, presumed (dead) dirty. Ergo I assume [why? why did I assume this?] that he will locate and inspect it, and look out a replacement if necessary. Hmmm, I further assume that this means he’s likely to check that the boys’ shoes are looked out too.”
Here is what i can only imagine was going through G’s head at the same time, given that ten minutes before the boys’ school taxi arrived the following morning I realised there was no jersey to be found, clean or otherwise, and a scant 3 of a possible 4 shoes lined up by the door.
