Straight to the point

Today the lady from across the road dropped in to say goodbye to Myles, as they were leaving for Tasmania this morning – before joining me in Dubai in four weeks or so.

Myles, as usual, was straight to the point.  When she said goodbye to him, he almost immediately changed the subject when he asked why her son speeds on his motorcycle.  She said she didn’t know, but she’d mention it to him.  I thought this would be the end, but oh no, Myles just had to mention at that point in time that he was going to become a police officer. I think it could have been deemed a warning shot from the four year old.
