A Dialogue Of Doubt

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.” 

 “It’s Manchester.”  

“The Museum of Science & Industry in Manchester.” 

“The Police Museum in Manchester.” 

“What trip?”
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.

  1. As long as they were safe, together, and had fun… and hopefully learned something! It should make parents everywhere feel a bit better about not being able to keep up with the impossible task of knowing everything about everything that is going on with their kids!
