LB and the ‘c’ word

“Hey, LB. Tell Mum what you called me when I came in yesterday,” said Richy.
“The ‘c’ word Mum.”
“What?!!! What did you do that for???”
“Dunno Mum. It just came up and out of my mouth, Mum. I’m sorry Richy. I won’t say it again, I promise.”

Postscript: We ain’t made him stand in the corner. He’s peering at the bus depot through the park fence. Honestly.
