While Misty was looking for her missing mobile, she found Blake on his bed, ankles crossed.
Still too small to dial, but not to speak.
"Hello, hello, Guppy, are you there?"
"Where's Guppy?" asks Misty.
"Guppy's Gone", sighs Blake.
"Oupa, Oupa, where are you? Your 'phones broken, mommy."
He then puts his palms together: "Let us Pray."
Later, "Golf, Daddy, golf. Please Daddy."
"We can't, my boy. It's raining."
"Well then, just give me a hug."
Misty left to do the groceries, and returned to find a little boy she did not recognise sitting in the garden.
Nick had crew-cut Blake's hair, which resembled a porcupine, and left a pumpkin fritter fringe which was promptly gelled.
Blake was not amused and Misty attempted to rectify the situation. But the slipped scissor, left Blake with a bald patch.
He now resembled Dennis the Menace.
But, Blake's day did get better.
The family discovered a spider ogling them from the curtains.
Not an insy winsy one, but a big, fat hairy one resembling Rasputin. This was the size of Nick's hand according to Blake.
Nick trapped the spider with a bowl, and let it loose in the garden.
I would have smacked it with a spade.
In all the excitement, with Misty and Nick screaming like nervous Idols Contestants, Blake was bouncing about, screaming with laughter.
