Gumboots with wheels on

Pearl and Fainjin were reading an “I Spy” book together – the sort where there are photographs of lots of different things and you have to look for an assortment of “treasures”.

Fainjin was doing the “calling” and Pearl the finding.  Fainjin said, “Can you find a gumboot?”  Pearl pointed.

“Can you find a gumboot with wheels on it?”

I turned from the sink, puzzled.  What could he be looking at?  Then Pearl sighed and said with great big-sister superiority, “They’re called roller skates, Fainjin.”
