Day 12 === The Tabloid Twelfth

New "Berliner" size Guardian launched today: had to rely on a friend at work to sneakily hide the last copy at the bottom of the rack for me to find. Looks good to me: somehow friendlier, helped greatly by the colour on every page.

Then, once at home:

"Dad," said The Boy, "I know 22 words."
"That's good," I replied.
"Actually, it's 42," he carried on - "is that a lot?"
"Yep, that's a lot," I confirmed.
"Actually" - big pause for dramatic effect - "it's a million."
"Now that is a lot," I said.
"Not really. It's 42."
