The Terrible Two's - 25 June 2011

One of the joys of living in a remote village with little influence from the outside world, is that what is now considered 'beyond the pale' where we licved in the UK is considered absolutely normal (as it should be here).

'I like children', is a phrase when said by a man in th UK is deemed inappropriate, and would probably leed to your neighbours reporting you to the SS (Social Services). As every grown male adult in the UK is actually a closet paedophile. I think this has come about for a few reasons, I certainly don't think there has been any sudden increase in the number of weirdo's out there. I remember always being told not to take sweets from starngers when I was young, now though through the sensationalist media, the subject has been used as our daily 'two minutes of hate' so we don't worry so much about other things that are going on.

So last night whilst enjoying a beer or three in my local pub (it has been very hot, and as beer is so cheap seems a good way to rehydrate), which is located in the middle of the village. In comes Ozhan. Ozhan is two years old. The rest of the pub, range between 36 and 85. All male. Not one CRB check between them. Ozhans dad is away working in Belgium for a few months, so his mum sends him round the pub (they live two doors away) for an hour every night if he needs some male company. Ozhan is spoilt rotten by all and sundry in the pub and everyone makes an effort, which is unsuprising as with most two year olds they are easily engaged, especially when chocholate is involved. Having come from the UK where children are seen but not heard, it is quite refreshing to see. What is more refreshing is that men are not automatically considered weirdo's for liking small children.

As the nights are still light well into the evening, we are sat outside enjoying the breeze as it has been in the mid thirties most days this week. When Ozhan's cat enticed by the smell of salami sausage (a traditional side dish with beer) comes along. Ozhan in full show off mode introduces the cat by pulling its tail, much to the amusement of all. Said cat not best pleased decides that the best course of action to rid itself of its tail pulling owner is to 'spray' him. It worked a treat. The look on his face was of utter astonishment, and the tail was immediately released. Ozhan is cleaned up, and has his 'trauma' treated with more chocolate and crisps, which seems to work well. His mum then comes and collects him as 'evening creche' has finished for the day.

No risk assement compiled on the dangers of pulling cats tails, no CRB checks for 'men that like children', no SS demanding that children should be hidden from alchohol, and whats more no children with social skills promblems, no teenage delinquents. No drink until I am sick young aldults. How is this managed, I will leave it to you.
