I am six or, in human years, 42, which my mum says is HIGHLY significant. It is, apparently the answer to ‘life, the universe and everything’. Wow, I’m the answer to life, the universe and everything? Well, I think it’s well deserved.
I’ve got hold of the wrong end of the stick, says mum. Stick, stick, there’s no stick in here! Not a real stick, a figurative stick. Eh? There’s a real stick in the yard; I know nothing about figurative sticks.
No she says (getting impatient now), 42 is the accepted answer to life, the universe and everything as discovered by author Douglas Adams. Hmm, so I’m not going to be a famous philosopher. In that case I think I prefer a real stick.
