You Won! No You Did!

I heard the above conversation just this morning.

I’m walking along the bike path near Brighton Beach in Melbourne this morning. I’ve just passed the bathing boxes.

To my left I see a blur of hair and colour as two small girls in dresses, one wearing a shawl, race each other down the path.

They cross in front of me and touch the fence at the same time.

Then they turn to each other and say You Won! No You Did!

I look down and softly say, “You both did.”

But they’re still sorting it out. Children these days!
