ebony and ivory

Every day, my son Ben (7) runs out of school laughing and chatting, hand-in-hand with his best friend, a boy from India. Ben is very pale and his friend is very dark, so it's ebony and ivory - beautiful!

I had a chat with Ben's friend's mum the other day. Here's what she said, in her pretty broken accent:

"My son says Ben is very good. He says Ben is very intelligent and prays all the time."

Not sure exactly what impression that made!! But amusing all the same.
