My daughter Millie was on a school trip this morning, but I wasn’t sure where it was she was actually going to.
“Where are you going?”
“I don’t know, but it’s Science Week, so it’s somewhere to do with science.”
“Don’t worry, I’ll ask some of the other parents at school.”
Seemed logical enough, yes?
Here are a selection of answers I obtained from the other Mums and Dads.
“Evie told me it’s Lancaster.”
“It’s somewhere in Rochdale.”
“The Museum of Science & Industry in Manchester.”
“The Police Museum in Manchester.”
I thought I’d be better off asking the teachers.
Teacher #1 (who was actually going): “I think it’s Manchester University.”
Teacher #2: “Preston University.”
Me: “Is there a university in Preston?”
Teacher #2: “Maybe it’s Lancaster.”
Last resort parent: “I’m not sure where it is, but it’s somewhere to do with DNA.”
There you go, Millie. Enjoy your time on Jeremy Kyle.
*It turns out that they went to the University of Central Lancashire in Preston.
