Yes I Can!

Outside of The Island pub in Kensal Green last week, a little girl in a twirly blue dress was standing on her brother’s scooter. Her hair was white-blond and she wore glasses with thick, magnifying lenses. When her dad scolded her for being on the scooter, saying she couldn’t do it because she was only 3-years-old and too young, she retorted, “I can! Yes I can! I can do anything!” And off she went.
I smiled to myself as I walked past on my way home. With that sort of attitude, she will be able to do anything indeed.
