‘You’re a meme!’ said Agnes.
‘A what-what now?’ said Archie.
‘A meme. That photo of you from Christmas last year?’
‘The one where I was dressed up in your…’
‘No, not that one.’
‘Because that was just for playing the dame in the panto.’
‘Yes, dear. No, the one where you opened the present from Frank and looked confused.’
‘Well, I had no idea what a FitBit was. I still don’t.’
‘That’s because you’ve never taken it out the box. Anyway, I was talking to Janice last week and got confused about something, so I sent her that picture of you looking confused and she used when she was confused about something else with someone else and now it’s gone viral.’
‘Like an infection?’
‘No, it’s a meme.’
‘You keep saying that ridiculous word.’
‘It means everyone round the world is now using that picture of you to send to other people whenever they’re confused about something.’
Archie’s phone beeped. He looked at the message and looked confused. ‘Terry’s just sent me that picture of me looking confused.’
Agnes snapped a picture of him staring at the phone, looking confused.
‘Why are you taking my picture?’
‘Meme update. Confused version 2.0, you looking confused looking at the meme of you looking confused.’
‘Oh, for God’s sake.’
