Walking down the street, you encounter a folded piece of paper on the sidewalk. You pick it up and read it and immediately, your life has changed. Describe this experience.
“Billy what’s that by the side of the road?”
“Don’t de so feckin lazy an go an look for yerself, can ye not seem I’m busy here.”
“Aye. Busy doing nothing ya big lump.”
Seamus picks something up off the ground.
“It’s a note.”
“Aww happy days Seamus, please tell me it’s a £20 note, I could do with a pint.”
“No Billy, it’s not that kinda note. It’s a Doctor’s note. They found your missing brain cell.”
“Ha feckin ha. Seriously though what is it?”
“It’s an invitation to the Europa Hotel for your man that tends the fires down at the forge works.”
“Ye mean wee Sooty, on account of the fact the wee bugger looks like a chimney sweep, always covered from head to toe in the stuff from the arse of the fire.”
“Aye that’s the one.”
“C’mon we’ll take it down to him, sure we’re not doing anything else anyway.”
Billy and Seamus reach the Forge Works and ask to speak to Sooty.
“Alright lads. Youse lookin for me?”
“Ye can call me Joe.”
“Aye Joe, we found this here invitation addressed to you, it’s for the Europa Hotel.”
“Ye did not. Feck that’s brilliant. I thought I’d lost it and wasn’t going to be able to go. I’ve won a prize and that’s where I’m supposed to collect it. Thanks so much. Here take this £20 and buy yourselves a couple of pints, my way of saying thanks.”
“Ach no we couldn’t………”
“Look I insist, you have no idea how grateful I am.”
“Well thanks very much indeed. Glad to help. Looks like you shall go to the ball after all Cinder fella.”
NB: Wracked my brain for half a day and couldn’t think of anything else. Yvette don’t you dare shout, I promise not all posts will be BIlly & Seamus related! :)
