930. A wigwam for a goose’s bridle

Young Rupert had his heart set on getting a trankulator for his birthday.

“I thought you’d know what it was,” said Rupert’s mother to Rupert’s father. “I thought it must be some sort of toy machine, or something for making things with wood.”

“I wouldn’t have a clue,” said Rupert’s father to Rupert’s mother. “A trankulator! I have no idea!”

So Rupert got a wigwam for a goose’s bridle instead, and was just as pleased.

      My father always used it. I remember him in the shed making a doll’s house for my sister’s birthday and when asked “Dad what are you making?” he said “A wigwam for a goose’s bridle”!

            I was polite and didn’t mention that. I think Australia tries to claim Jane Campion as theirs.

            Are we still friends? If not, I’ll dust off my Canadian citizenship, I don’t think Canada stole anything from NZ.
