Well, it had to be done, didn't it? And since this is both the first and last post, I have won. Thank you all.
Ah, the losers are chatting among themselves. Come here, little prize. Mumsy will take you somewhere nice!
@2641 No, us moths are far too elusive for that. And while the pointy stick contenders are wittering, I'll just retrieve the prize, thanks very much.
No need to thank me. I didn't give him to you.
Makes no difference - he's still mine. All mine!
Shut your eyes and what you see then is yours. Prize is mine.
I shut my eyes and I see visions of endless fields of cilantro gently rustling in the soft breeze. Sigh...
@2647 That's not a vision, that's a nightmare!
Dream on boys, I win
Dream on. Boy, I win!
Dream on buoy. Now I win!
Floating to the top - I win!
alas your floating was interrupted by a pointy stick
don't worry I did catch Prize, it was not hurt
Now Groen, you give that pointy stick back to Dez! It's safer in her hands. Wait - what am I saying?!? Well, anyway, it frightens the prize. He's come back to me.
Prize is here with me. We went to a party and we danced and we danced and we danced. It's a real good dancer.
I know the prize likes to party. He's not a mumsy's boy at heart.
Yes, but it is well educatet, so it would never harm mumsy. It just don't tell everything.
Mumsy is on holydays - maintenant???
She's probably cooking up a new pot of soup. Won't do her any good. The prize knows the antidote.
I overheard her say she was taking a new knife - needed to do some sharpening. I don't think she meant peeling carrots.
Prize and me hope she's fine.
Prize and me hope the people of Brisbane are all right
Glad you noticed I was gone. I just spent two blissful nights with my granddaughters who are six (twins). I have missed them so much it has been painful, but we had a wonderful time! And I hope to see them again for a weekend after Easter. One said she wished she could stay with me forever. And words like that can melt a nanna's heart.
They don't, however, melt my brain, and you people have played fast and loose with my prize. He was weeping with relief to see me again. He told me of the horrific dancing ordeal, and how Gesine wouldn't let him have a moment's rest. I hate to say it, but he thinks she was - ahem - under the influence of alcohol.
He begged me to hide him away so he can rest his little legs.
Christine, you wouldn't know anything about a missing pointy stick, would you?
Kevin, many objectionable things float. You are only one of them. Splendiferous language or not.
Cris, what can I say? You have always been jealous of little prizey. You want to be sooked and cosseted (no - take that off! I said, "cOsseted") like him. Well, let me win, and I'll see what I can arrange...
You think I want to be an Ossete? A native or inhabitant of Ossetia, a region of the central Caucasus partly in Russia and partly in Georgia?
The last time I was sooked was when I road my bike in the rain.
No, I am not jealous of little prizy. I just don't want people stealing him from me and coddling him to death. The prize needs room to grow and mature like a government bond.
*looks very innocent*
pointy stick me?
[teacher-mode] "The last time I was soaked was when I rode my bike in the rain"
now do your homework little chris [/teacher-mode]
yes I'm insufferable
but Prizey loves the correct use of the English language
...says a girl from Netherlands. (Christine, I am happy to know your name now)
Oh no, I don't think my English is Oxford - like.
I use leo.org for problems.
But so far as I know, Prizey doesn't cares.
@Dez: Yes, alcohol was part of the party, but so what?? It was a great party!!
And don't be afraid .Prizey is only sucking on a bottle of beer... [ is that the right expression?]
@ Chris: We are at the same opinion! Prize loves parties.
Oh, I forgot to say: I am the winner!
