‘Shall we go for a run in the car?’
How is that possible?
Does the car not have wheels?
Will we be putting our legs through holes in the floor?
How can that be safe?
They need to run in the engine
But it’s too small
Not even one of us could fit in.
They are running through the options
But not moving.
And nor am I.
