Tuesday 18 March 2014: Good griefing

She's been 'griefed' on Minecraft.

"Really?" I say.

"Yeah, they built a sponge globe around my world"

"You mean like a sponge as in cake?"

"No! a real sponge"

"Oh I see like a sponge that you wash the dishes with"


" burn it" I say

"I can't, it will destroy my whole world"

"oh dear, well maybe you can take it down, sponge by sponge"

" but that'll take ages"

Having these almost surreal-like conversation with an 11 year old really does make me think that if I was diagnosed as 'mad' then at least I can drag the majority of 11 year olds into the holding cell with me.

I find it even more difficult to explain these conversations to granny when she walks into the room, I can see the irritation build on her face as she struggles with the concept and no doubt feels a little 'stupid' because she cannot understand. What are we doing to our older population?

I feel it's time to discuss the weather.
