Son Are we there yet?
Dad No son, it’s just around the corner.
Son Oh! Okay dad.
Time passes.
Son Are we there yet?
Dad No son. As I told you, it’s just around the corner. Now stop asking.
Son But I’m tired, we’ve been walking for ages.
Dad You’ve only been walking for an hour. Now come on, get a move on.
Son But my feet hurt.
Dad Stop complaining, anyone would think you had been walking for miles.
Son It feels like miles.
Time passes.
Son Are we there yet?
Dad NO! Now stop asking. Stop whinging and get a move on. That snail will be taking you over soon.
Son But he hasn’t been walking as long as us. His legs don’t hurt.
Dad Stop whinging. Look it’s only around the corner.
Son You said that this morning.
Dad Yes. And I was right this morning.
Son Can’t we have a rest?
Dad Come on, we are nearly there.
Son Dad?
Dad Yes son?
Son I wish we weren’t tortoises.
Dad Why is that son?
Son We would have been around this corner hours ago.
