I was collecting Mac from the school excursion at the local zoo and was met by Mac and his mate K.
K: “Mac smells like pig smell” he said in a manner that ‘implied’ I should consider this a good thing.
I admit, I was a teeny bit worried.
Let’s face it – no one wants their kid to be known as “Smelly” or “Stinky Burns” or (deep breath in) “Pig Smell”.
Me: “Oh, OK then – is that good?” I asked wincing just a tad.
K: “Yeah! It’s awesome” he confirmed. “Mac couldn’t reach the pig to pat him so I leant over the fence and patted him then wiped the pig smell on Mac’s hands and arms so he had some too”
Me: “Yep, you’re right – that’s cool.”
So there you have it…pig patting by proxy, sharing pig smells & including your mate.
Yep, that’s what we fight for.
