Poo is funny no matter where you come from
Since he's been here, he's been pretty quiet. Besides being fairly quiet naturally, I guess it's quite overwhelming to be in a country that's so different to what you're used to. He's away from his mum and sister, the food is different, it smells and sounds different, it's cold, the whole place is just not quite like home.
Yesterday, I had a doctor's appointment and had dragged the girls along with me. By chance we ran into my mum, brother and nephew when we pulled up. The girls went to a cafe with them while I saw the doctor. When I came out, my nephew was sitting away, head buried in his DS. Understandably he's not that interested in his younger girl cousins' antics.
I hadn't heard him utter a sound that whole morning. Until we got up to leave and Goosey cried out: "I need to do a poo!" My nephew cracked up in laughter. Poo is universally funny. No matter what culture you're from, if you're a kid you can always get a laugh with poo.
