#71 There’s no such thing as a Guavai

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!

Ponch: GUAVAI!

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!
