The Angry Pirate

Yesterday we were waiting in a queue to pay for lunch a a well know blue and yellow furniture store when a lady pushed past my son to get a glass. On her way back to the till point she stood in front of my son, staring at him and waiting for him to move. I had to pull him out of her way.

She didn't even say 'Excuse me' maybe she thought children don't deserve the courtesy of manners.

Last night my boy who has just turned 7 wrote a story, here it is:

The Red Pirate was a deadly curse.
He is very mean and nasty.
He has red eyes and terrible scars.

Once a upon a time there was a pirate. He was very fierce and angry. He was a ghost because he is dead.
One day he was walking on a street and then he saw a cafe. He walked in, budged through the line and got his lunch and the woman said 'Be happy and have good manners'.

It changed his life into a new dimension.

He was very happy now and guess what? He even said 'thank you'.
But he just felt happy.
