Christmas Shenanigans from Footballer's Knees.

>> Tuesday, 16 December 2014

I am blatantly stealing cred from my insanely talented sis, Footballer's Knees, again.  A quick recap; she lives in the UK with her husband Big A, and son J.

Here for your delectation is one of her latest fb missives...

Big A and I are playing the traditional game,'What's behind the Advent calendar door?' As usual, we are days behind, so have a week's worth to open.

'Number 5 - what's it going to be?' I ask, expectantly. 

Big A draws in a breath and sucks his teeth, in the manner of a brown coated hardware shopkeeper, thinking about whether he has 3 mil washers in stock. He's an aficionado of this game and takes it seriously. 'Well, it's early days, so we shouldn't be expecting angels or stars. I'm thinking camel, the ship of the desert...'

'....it's a star.'


Big A shakes his head. What is the world coming to, when a star makes such an early appearance in the game? 'OK then, if that's the way it's going to be, the next one will be an angel.'


Pause. 'It's two kittens, playing with a ball of wool.'


He shakes his head again. Time to play tough. 'In that case, it's definitely an angel next...'


'...it's a woman collecting water from a well.'


Big A stands and shouts. 'What the f@ck? What sort of sh*t is that?'


I cover my ears. 'Ssshh, don't swear in front of the Advent calendar. If you can't play nicely, we won't play at all.'


I hang up the calendar and exit the room, leaving him to untangle the Christmas tree lights alone.
