Once upon a time ( well yesterday really) a man and a woman decided to journey to the city for shopping of the Christmas and Birthday kind. They left before the children awoke but the children's grandfather was there awaiting for them to do so, and prepare them for their schooling.
The husband and wife travelled for 2 and half hours and were just leaving their first shopping spot when the telephone rang. "This is the teacher of your youngest cherub" the voice on the end said. "We think that he might have conjunctivitis and he needs to be collected from school". Thank goodness for grandparents, for they were quick to abide and so off grandfather did trot to collect the youngest cherub and then later take him to the doctor for the required medication.
Meanwhile back in that city, the credit card was flashing and shopping was done. Husband needed to deliver some goods so he left his beloved wife at a shopping centre whilst she shopped for some required groceries. She finished and waited and waited for her man in shining armour to come and collect her and take her to other shopping attractions.
Finally she pulled out her telephone and rang the husband - "where are you?" she asked ever so pleasantly.
"My darling" he said, "I am looking for you but you aren't where I am looking"! "
"Where are you?" she asked again.
"I'm at the xxxxx shopping centre" he said.
She was quick to remind him that she was at the yyyyyy shopping centre just where he had left her. Later all was revealed that in fact he had also been to the wwwwww shopping centre and then zzzzzzzz shopping centre looking for her and was too embarrassed to phone and say that he was lost and couldn't remember which shopping centre he had left her.
Ah yes an interesting day!
