And you thought the thinking was thorough


'But you're sure?' asked Norma. 'I mean really sure...completely sure, I mean really completely sure?'

'Yep!' replied Annie and she did a little dance.



'.............................................You're sure?' asked Norma.

Annie nodded her head so much that her bandage waved about in the most alarming fashion.

'..................So you're...'

YEP!' interrupted Annie and she did a slightly longer dance and Geraldine joined in. 'I've even examined it under a kaleidoscope.'

'You mean a microscope,' corrected Norma.

'No a kaleidoscope,' replied Annie, 'it is an idea after all!'

Norma and Bertha exchanged nervous glances.

'People aren't going to like it,' said Bertha.

'I was a bit surprised myself,' replied Annie and here she did a very pretty dance and everyone joined in. 'Which may help to account for why it was such a difficult think to have.'

'Well if you're sure?' said Norma, 'and seeing as how we've put security in place to guard it.'

Annie nodded her head again.

'I think,' she announced, 'it's time for a nap.'

'Fine!' replied Norma.

So Annie fell over sideways and Bertha and Norma huddled together.

'Well then!' said Norma.

'Can't be helped,' replied Bertha, 'she's very sure.'

'True!' said Norma, 'I suppose I'd better go and tell his Captainship?'

'No need to rush,' replied Bertha.

'Indeed,' agreed Norma, 'an interlude of sorts would be most welcome......Horace!....Horace!'
