Of thoughts and thinks and thunks
'Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm,' said Annie, 'tricky!'
'But you'd be willing to give it a go?' asked Norma.
'It'd be a challenge,' replied Annie.
'You've done as much before,' said Norma.
'It's been a long time though,' replied Annie, 'the thing in my head that I have thinks with might have completely stopped working for all I know.'
'We'd all be willing to do what we could to help,' said Norma, 'well, when I say 'all' I mean most of us.'
'I'm thinking Captain Eyepatch might be otherwise engaged?' speculated Annie.
'You see!' smiled Norma. 'You're thinking already!'
'True!' agreed Annie. 'But that was just a very small thunk, it may not have come from inside my head at all, it could easily have been just a tail think thunk.'
'But it's a good sign,' suggested Norma.
'KEEP LEFT!' mooed Annie.
'Sorry?' said Norma.
'That was another good sign,' replied Annie, 'it stopped me from falling off a cliff once. Mind you, it only worked in one direction, coming back was a nightmare!'
'I fear we might be getting off topic,' said Norma.
'Possibly,' said Annie, '............what was the topic again?'
'Would you be willing to try to have a think thunk thought about we could go about finding the pirate sheep?'
'Right,' said Annie, 'right........right...........I'm thinking............I'm thinking...........I'm thinking I may know how to make myself have such an important think.'
So Annie explained her think, Geraldine made notes and Norma fainted.
