A Reluctant Bather

Upon finishing his dinner, which had been spaghetti with tomato sauce, Nicholas approached me. He was, as is typical after such a meal, rather orange. Looking him over, I asked whether he would like a bath.
"No!" said he.
"But you are covered with pasta and sauce," said I.
"Pasta," said he, "Nikki eat pasta!"
And from somewhere on his person, he procured a length of spaghetti and popped it into his mouth.
"Bathtime," said I.


  1. I'm afraid I have been listening to rather too much of the Swiss Family Robinson audio book. Classical literature tends to affect my writing style!

  2. I was going to say that it reminded me of old storybooks (I wondered whether or not you had been listening to Tolkien! Although it may not have been so concise, if that had been the case). :)
