A trifle concerned


'Another spoonful of trifle?' asked Norma.

'How many have I had so far?'

'Spoonfuls or trifles?' questioned Norma.

'Hmm,' said Annie, '...........trifles.'

'Thirty seven.'

'Probably enough,' replied Annie.

'I am slightly concerned that the extra weight could slow you down,' added Norma, 'and for obvious reasons you do need to be as nimble as possible.'

'True!' agreed Annie, 'but if I'm going to be splateriaterified I'd like the splat to look as pretty as possible.'

Norma turned a little pale.

'Well hopefully it won't come to that.' she suggested.

'I'm going to try my best to aviod it,' replied Annie, 'and I feel a tad more confident now I've got my sticker on.'

'That's good,' said Norma. 'Now I've got to be off soon but Cyril's going to take over until the final moments and of course you still have Geraldine.'

'Excellentable!' mooed Annie.

And with that Norma gave Annie a hug and turned to decend the steps of the platform.

'Actually,' called out Annie, 'before you go....could I have just one last spoonful?'

'Of course you can,' replied Norma.

So she gave Annie one last VERY large spoonful of trifle and an extra hug.

And the time for spaterification moved closer.
