‘Can I quote you?’


‘Can I quote you?’

Returning from an awesome walk around Lysterfield lake, one of those walks where we saw an echidna, a wallaby and a kookaburra, we were chatting in the car.  I was enthusiastic because we’d discovered that although the entry gate closes it’s still possible to arrive and leave ‘after hours’.

‘We can even walk in winter late in the day and enjoy twilight,’ I said

‘Can I quote you?’ asked the minion.

I paused.  There was something VERY SUSPICIOUS about his tone of voice.  ‘What do you mean?’

‘You enjoy Twilight,’ he said, clearly trying not to laugh while ducking his head and turning away.
