What shall we do about Annie?
I'm just a bit worried about her,' said Norma.
'I'd be more worried for her students,' replied Captain Bill. 'Imagine your first day at school and finding that you've got her as a teacher!'
'I mean I know she means well,' continued Norma.
Captain Bill stopped walking and looked out over the sea.
'It's just a passing thing,' he said. 'Give it a couple of weeks and she'll be building fridges out of dandelions.....again!'
'Perhaps,' replied Norma, 'but I have a feeling she's serious about it.'
Captain Bill thought for a while.
'I'm not sure I could cope with that.'
'Well you might have to.' said Norma. 'Still I'll try and divert her for a bit...we'll need to pick out a Christmas tree soon.'
'Really?' asked Captain Bill.
'It's only a few weeks away now,' said Norma, 'I'll have to start wrapping presents soon.'
'Yesssssss,' replied Captain Bill,'....presents....erm....I'll see you later.'
And with that he ran off.
