Small Talk #79


Next day, Baba went to pay for hiring the speedboat. The lady looked shocked when she checked how much fuel we'd used.

"It's unusual to burn so much fuel. You've used 29 litres."

"How's that?" asked Baba, "we stayed on this side of the islands."

They'd tracked our movements on GPS. She showed him where we'd been on the screen. Up and down, up and down, over and over.

It was Daddy and Baba blasting it while I was sleeping!

The fuel cost almost as much as the boat hire!

"Well", said Baba handing over the cash, "it's our holiday!"
