WALKING HOME FROM SCHOOL

Elliot: "If you step on a crack, you'll break your mother's back."

Mother: "Oh, when I was a kid we said - if you step on a crack you'll marry a rat"

Elliot: " No, Mama, that was the olden days. These days, in the days of colour television, we say - if you stand on a crack you'll break your mother's back."

Tee hee. Isn't it nice to think that we grew up in the 'olden days'. Tell Elliot I remember getting a colour television when I was 11!! Childrens rhymes don't change much do they...even if technology does.
