Teacup of the week: writer at work

My four-year-old daughter Lilly was bored, so she occupied herself by beating the keyboard on my partner’s computer. Lilly kept yelling, “Mum, I’m writing a story.” This was falling on deaf ears as I was busy in the kitchen at the time. Lilly became louder, repeating “Mum, I’m writing a story!” So I asked, “Oh really? What’s the story about?”Lilly replied, “I don’t know, I can’t read.”
