What does an exclamation 'Easy! But young girls!' mean in the following sentence:
'His son had married and gone to live in Kenya, and his grandchildren were eleven, five and two and a half and had been entertained on their last visit by football and space science talk, electric trains, and a ride on his foot. Easy! But young girls!'
Thank you in advance.
I'm so glad you gave the context.
It sounds like the man took care of his grandSONs before and found entertaining little boys easy - sports, astronauts, trains.
Now he has to entertain little girls and he doesn't know what to do.
But I'm guessing.
