Dire Emergency Situations #36

Whirl reclines in the bath, traces his toe round the tap like a fledgling ballerina negotiating the dance equivalent of a bicycle stabiliser.

The doorbell rings.

Odd. Who can this be at a quarter to six on a cold November night?

Son-of-Whirl calls up the stairs. ‘Dad. There’s a man. With a parcel.’

Of course!.

The surprise Christmas Xbox from Amazon...

Surprise for whom?

Hope the Xbox is fun. I prefer PC games, myself. for which I have ordered a new HP laptop. Vroom! No loading problems anymore. Until Windows eats all my 6MB of RAM.

As it turns out, most of the games you can get for the Xbox are of the murderdeathkilling variety — apart from Tranny Prod (which is an 18).

Hence our Playstation and Nintendo Gamecube.
