Nigel 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.
But, 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.
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???
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?
