Following Yonder Star …….

Nigel in LondonNigel got himself into an absolute state of flux when he spotted a Pret A Manger while he and Darrell were promenading Oxford/Bond Street in the London Style.
Darrell said Nigel just wouldn’t rest until they went into the aforementioned Pret A Manger and availed themselves of a corned beef bloomer and macchiato each,  with Nigel, eyes on stalks,  looking all around him,  as if desperately searching for something.
Pret a mangerBut, when they sat down to consume their Pret A Manger comestibles Darrell noted that Nigel’s mood had changed and he had become a little distant,  Darrell sensed that something was a definitely amiss with the little fella.
Pret a manger baguette.Darrell decided that he would have to give Nigel a little gentle probing in order to ascertain what was now troubling him.  After a long silence Nigel quietly confided in Darrell that he had thought he might see the Baby Jesus in Pret A Manger ….  a statement that now put Darrell in a complete state of flux ….. What?? How?? Why???
Pret a manger.Sheepishly,  Nigel explained that though he didn’t have a clue what “Pret” meant, he had seen and “followed the (Pret A Manger) star”,  remembering the Christmas story of how the Baby Jesus had been born in a “manger” ………….  oh Nigel, Nigel, Nigel ….. there’s not a lot you can really say to all that is there?
151Except …. what is he like?????

Oh my, having one's bubble burst is so traumatic and heartbreaking; poor dear Nigel facing a harsh reality....so sorry he couldn't enjoy his comestibles....hoping he was soon distracted with something that captured his attention...... Dianne
