Dot writes: Frank listens carefully in his religious studies lessons at school. Here’s a snippet from today’s serious car conversation.
Frank: Jesus was white wasn’t he?
Me or Ken, can’t remember: He came from the Middle East, so he was probably a lot darker than us. But probably not black like Tunde [the very nice Nigerian boy who babysat them yesterday and was a big hit].
Frank: He was white because he never made any mistakes.
Frank: And he died on the cross for our sins. The cross in the road. He was in the road and a car came along and squished him.
I think Frank is confusing cross and crossroad. But, anyway, we hardly knew where to start with all this, and I was busy having shameful silent giggles as well. We might need to turn this particular conversation over to Granddad.
