Overheard in a DIY shop this week, a conversation between a man and a boy of about four:

"Daddy, I want a saw!"
"You've got a saw."
"No, a REAL saw with a machine on, like the man with the tree in Richmond"
"A chainsaw. When you're a bit older you can have a chainsaw, because they're very sharp and dangerous."
"When I'm five?"
"Well, a bit older than five."
"When I'm six Daddy, when I'm six Daddy, when I'm six Daddy, when I'm..."
"Ok, when you're six."

If you have any children of about four who are due to go to school in Teddington eventually, be afraid, be very afraid...
