Hear no evil…

Like a couple of other times lately, I’m a couple of daily prompts behind…so I’m going to do two now…with six days lefts with the cherubs, as well as the Christmas concert tomorrow night, the movers coming next Wednesday and getting everything at work finished off it is slightly hectic and tiring…more so than usual.

Anyway the prompt says…tell us about a conversation you couldn’t help but overhear and wish you hadn’t.

A number of years ago…ten years ago to be in fact, in a version of Country Town long long in the past I was working with cherubs who were mostly high school aged and were disengaged from any education, they had been expelled from the only high school in town, the next closest high school was 200km (124 miles) away, so there was no other option for them other than coming to us and for the first couple of years there wasn’t a huge amount of proper school work done.

Even though they were high school aged, the majority hadn’t had a lot of school between suspensions and periods of absence in their younger days…and then there was the colourful language to deal with along with the various substances that they frequently indulged in.

So one day one of them is making lunch with me and while peeling the potatoes they started talking about a break in that had happened the night before and told me everything that was taken, who was involved and why.  Worse thing was about ten minutes later while still making lunch the police turned up, thankfully the cherub hadn’t been involved, but knew all the details, but I can’t say the same for all the other cherubs.
