Bumped into hobbitdave while waiting for the bus with ias and the garklet after work today. Cue the following conversation after Dave left:

garklet
Why that hobbitdave?
nmg
Well, that's his name.
garklet
Where is hobbitdave going?
nmg
He's on his way home to see gnommi.
garklet
Why?
nmg
Because he's gnommi's boyfriend!
garklet
Why he gnommi's boyfriend?
nmg
Because they like each other a lot. That's why they live together.
garklet
*nods sagely*
garklet
I think they need a boy.
nmg
Pardon?
garklet
I think they need a boy.
nmg
What kind of boy? A little boy, like you?
garklet
Yes. They need a little boy like me.

And you wonder why I adore your son ?

Cute! Clearly, everyone's life is incomplete without a garklet!

There's a separate post that I need to make about some heteronormative and uh, anti-feminist attitudes that he's expressed in the past few months. Damned if I know where he's picking these things up, because it isn't from us!

Books, like the thing about diesel trains being interesting and unusual because all trains in kids books are steam trains?

H

It's either that, or he's sneaking out and buying the Daily Mail when we're not watching.

If we hadn't gone via diesel, we never would have had the Class 55 (Deltic)...

Told you he was a little Clarkson in the making.
