After several days of anxious fretting and robust debate amongst the office our cockerel Hugh G was returned just as mysteriously as he had disappeared, courtesy of Amazon ….
“I’ve got a parcel for you two” said Mark our moustachioed caretaker … as he manoeuvred his bulging trolley down the corridor …. Darrell and I looked at each other quizzically, as to the best of our knowledge, we hadn’t ordered anything from the aforementioned Amazon!
However all was revealed when we opened the box …. there was Hugh G, none the worst for his adventure … nestled in paper that Darrell immediately recognised as some of his shredding, which must have been infiltrated on it’s was to the recycle bin ….. and there was also a “note” of sorts ….
The return of Hugh G put us in a highly effervescent, cock a hoop mood. Although a little shaken we decided to brush it off as inter office high jinks …. and join in the joke … but still keenly aware that the “japester” was still amongst us. However as a precaution, Darrell fettered Hugh G to the drawer handle of his desk with a piece of silver ribbon, vowing never to let Hugh G out of his sight again …..
…….. A joyous conclusion to a mystery of a very perplexing nature ………? Hmmmmmmm
