Dangerous Driving

Text message sent by my mum to me yesterday:

‘I am on my way to exmouth.  Dad has run over 2 granmas’

Does anyone else see why this is so funny to me?

  1. Quick grammar lesson:
    ‘run over’
    i. verb plus preposition. Eg. “She’s just run over to the shops.”
    ii. phrasal verb. Eg. “I’ve just run over a hamster!”
    Awkward flipping language we have.
    Especially when complicated by text language and by my dad being a runner.
