51yB+ZH7RoL._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_Whilst sitting outside a mechanic’s outdoor workshop waiting for the mechanic to repair our front window mechanism (again), Myron and I sat nearby and read some stories. First up for the day was one of our favourite African animal tales: ‘Awkward Aardvark’. As we got into position on a small cement wall nearby a local car owner came to join us. He too was waiting for his car to be repaired and Awkward Aardvark seemed much more enticing than watching the mechanics in action.

Upon entry of the aardvark snoring noises: ‘HHHRRR-ZZZZ!’ our car owner took over – clearly I wasn’t doing a very good job with bringing aardvark snoring to life. And that’s how we continued, I read the story, and our sound-effects-car-owner joined in several times for the aardvark snoring effects: right to the end.

I can’t think of anywhere else in the world where I think this may happen, but I loved it and so did Myron.
