Why Joe wants to be Sian Lloyd

He's mastered the pointing. Or he may be doing devil horns. Hard to know with Joe.

Watching the Sian Lloyd episode of Little Howard’s Big Question with Harry and Joe this morning, Joe said, “Mama, when I’m bigger can I be them?”

Me: “Who? Big Howard or Little Howard or Sian Lloyd?”

Joe: “The lady. With the weather. Like that.”

Me: “You want to be a lady or a dancer [there were dancers too, with umbrellas] or you want to be a weather forecaster?”

Harry: “Well you can’t be a lady…”

Me: “You can actually.”

Harry: “Oh yeah.”

Joe: “How do you do that?”

Me: “Be a lady or a weather forecaster?”

Joe: “A weather ‘caster.”

Me: “Well, you could learn about meteorology – study the weather – and then you could be a weather forecaster or work with weather in some other way. Maybe trying to predict things like hurricanes?”

Joe: “Yes, I want to do that. I want to be a doctor and then be a weather ‘caster then a firefighter and then a builder.”

Okay then.

  1. I met Sian Lloyd in the queue for a very wet muddy portaloo in Hay last year. She was lovely. (And coping extremely gracefully with hundreds of strangers going ‘did you predict all this rain, eh? Did you?’ like it was her fault.)
