Caitlyn enjoys a trip with me to see what I do. She has been to my office twice and is still convinced I don’t do anything (which is partially true). One fine Saturday morning she decided to come along to Reefsteamers in Germiston to take a look at the steam engines there. The problem is, when you are 23 inches tall, most things look big, when you are up against a steam engine you are positively dwarfed.
“Lyndie Lou is great, but I feel positively small next to her.”
“Cait, I hate to say this but you are only 23 inches tall.”
“Yeh yeh, rub it in. One day I will have a spurt of growth and be 23.5 inches!”
“Somehow I don’t see that unless you get big shoes. Come along, lets go visit Janine and Elize.”
“Can I drive? huh? huh? huh?”
“I don’t think so, you have to start at the bottom.”
“I am 23 inches from the bottom already.”
“Not like that, you have to learn to be a fireman, and then you can think about it. It’s a lot of hard work and responsibility.”
And then it was time to head off for home.
“Caitlyn, you are going to need a scrub when we get home.”
“Just you look in the mirror and you will see why!”
