To make conversation over dinner one night, I asked Nicholas, "If you could go anywhere in the world on holiday, where would you go?"
He answered very quickly: "Japan."
"Japan?" I asked. "Wouldn't that be scary to go to somewhere so far away where they speak a different language and have such a different culture and food? Why do you want to go to Japan?"
Again the answer was simple: "Tech."
"Tech? You're really that much of a techie?"
"Yeah," he shrugged. "I'd go to Sheffield if they had a talking toilet."

Let me introduce you to Barak Bear.
Barak is ten years old. His main interests are sleeping, eating, sleeping, football and sleeping. Despite the fact that he maintains that he never sleeps, this photograph demonstrates that he can sleep anywhere:
During the short time in the day when Barak is awake, he is pretty active. When he's not watching football,
he is usually having some kind of exciting adventure
or curiously exploring somewhere new.
Whatever he gets up to, he always ends up falling a sleep somewhere.
Why can I not find any pictures of him eating?
