Teacup of the week: It’s dynamite!

Over the Teacups

My grandchildren Ollie (5) and Millie (2) were using a public toilet while Mum was outside. Millie asked Ollie what the picture on the wall said. Ollie replied, “Oh, don’t throw dynamite down the toilet.” A few weeks later at school they were learning the letter “d”. Ollie’s drawing included a picture of a dinosaur, a dog and dynamite. The stick of dynamite looked very much like a tampon!
