Sunday afternoon at the local Natuurmuseum and the last chance to see an exhibition about Gruttos ... known as Godwits in English .
In one corner was a glass case with a slap-up spread fit for a king ... of the waterfowl sort .
The best china had been produced and the plates were piled high .
A little girl going round the exhibition at the same time as me , stared goggle-eyed at the food . "Mmmm... that looks good ", I said .
Just then her mother came round the corner and called over her shoulder to her husband ,
"Do you want to have tea here , or do you want to go into town ? " .
He didn't get the chance to answer . Their daughter leapt across the room ,
"Not here . Please not here ! "
Poor Mrs. Godwit ... she might not be used to picky eaters .
