What will the plane do when it gets to the end?

Walking with 3-year-old Chloe to the newsagent, I pointed out the rather nice, curved vapour trail in the distant sky.

“What will the plane do when it gets to the end [of the vapour trail]?” she asked, which brought a smile to my face. I think I tried to explain something along the lines of smoke being left behind by the plane.

It was her lucky day because she spotted a 5p coin on the pavement. She then informed me that party bags have coins with wrappers, and if you take off the wrapper there’s chocolate inside.

Oh the joy of conversation with a child.
