Regrets, he's had a few.


Captain Bill wondered whether he would regret having the conversation. He looked at Annie. He began to speak but hesitated. He began to speak for a second time but again he hesitated.

'That....that is a roll of wallpaper that you've got wrapped around you?'

Annie did a little dance which Captain Bill took to be a confirmation.

'And that....thing on your head....is it real?'

'If you think it is,' Annie replied.

'And the whole ensemble is because?'

'Norma Nice Person asked me to dress like a rich tourist and then hide myself in a bush.'

'Even when you know!' Captain Bill muttered.

'Is there a problem?' Annie asked. 'Your call is important to us.'

'There are so many things,' Captain Bill replied. 'And the other half of the double act? Norma dropped you off together I believe?'

'If you mean Sir Lord Cyril VC and Snack Bar?'

'Yes,' Captain Bill interrupted, 'him. Where is he?'

'I think you'll find he's standing next to you holding an umbrella,' Annie mooed.

'No, that would be Geraldine,' Captain Bill replied. 'Who is a small, well behaved, penguin. As opposed to the walking food dustbin that is Cyril. They are impossible to confuse.'

'......................................................................................The sun was in my eyes.'

'Hopeless!' 

'You're just getting angry with me because I've got wonky horns!'

'And all because of some nonsense about pirate sheep....'

'Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!' Annie exclaimed, 'Fluffy pirates!'

And she did another dance and Geraldine joined in...and Captain Bill, who regretted the conversation, wandered off to see who else he could find.

I think the polka dot bow tie is an especially touristy touch :D XXX

Annie's reality is sooooo enticing (few o's especially for Annie).
