Not that everyone there might have come to the same conclusion ...
As we hovered around the cowsheds, I heard the following rather tense exchange between two parents:
Man to woman wh, until then had been peacefully observing the newborn calves: Didn’t you hear your son? [Do you reckon he's always only 'her' son when he's being naughty?]
Woman: No. Why? What was he doing?
Man: He was shouting…. very loudly!
Woman: [mildly exasperated]: So? He’s outside. On a farm. He’s alright.
Man [clearly annoyed began looking around him for further evidence that she was in dereliction of motherly duties...until he smugly declared] Well, he’s near some chemicals now!!
Turns out there weren't any chemicals, just some containers of water ... but you've got to wonder if the husband would've been happier if the child had fallen into a vat of fertiliser ... just so he could have taught his wife a lesson!
