My nephew has been looking forward to June for quite a while.
He knows this is the month when his birthday is, so he often asks 'When is June coming?'
On Saturday, I told him that it was June 1st the following day hoping to make him excited that the month of his birthday was nearing.
He then asked 'Does that mean it's my birthday soon?'
'Yes, in three weeks.'
The youngster became excited and queried 'So, three sleeps until my birthday?'
'No. Twenty,' was my response.
Cue pissed off four-year old.
I felt like quite a baddie doing that.
In hindsight, I should have waited until closer to the day. I guess I'll know in future.
