In which I apologise to everyone in America simultaneously

At dinner on Friday night.

Oscar: ‘Why do we celebrate July the fourth?’

Me: ‘We don’t. It is American Independence Day and we are not Americans.’

Oscar: ‘Oh. OK. What is American Independence Day?’

Tallulah:’Don’t worry about it Oscar. It’s just about a bunch of Americans on a ship, throwing tea bags into the sea.’

Oscar: ‘OK’.
