I can count the arguments your ma and I have had on one hand. Probably on three fingers. (More or less). Which I think in ten years isn’t bad at all.
Sharing with you the brief, but important Guavai arguement from oh-seven. Your mum’s drinking a can of fizzy drink and we’ve clearly run out of interesting things to talk about.
Spudge (Me): What flavour’s that drink Em?
Ponch: (Your mum): Not sure.
Spudge: Well what’s it say in the ingredients?
Ponch: Mango, Pinapple, Passionfruit and Guavai.
Spudge: There’s no such thing as a Guavai.
Ponch: Yes, there is. It says it here. Everyone’s heard of a guavai.
Spudge: It’s Guava. It hasn’t got an I on the end…
Ponch: It HAS!
Spudge: It’s guava – GUAV-a!
So we disputed this for some time and then I looked at the can too. It did say guavai. I was baffled. I was sure there was no such thing as a guavai. On closer inspection we learned that the fruits were listed in brackets like this: [Mango, Pineapple, Passionfruit and Guava] But a glitch in the printing made it look like guavai. Honest mistake, anyone could have made it!
Our friendship survived this brief disagreement, and there is no such thing as a guavai!
