When we got in from work yesterday there was a parcel of a very mysterious type nature waiting in the porch of Castle Greysquirrel addressed to Monkey, Darrell and Nigel ….. to wit us!!!!!We didn’t recognise the handwriting, but were very excited by the romantic London postmark, because parcels from London are always very important.
We let Nigel do the honour of revealing the contents of the said parcel ….. OMG …OMG ...OMG… his (and our) eyes were as big as saucers as we all spotted the name “Kinder” through the bubble wrap …… and we have to admit, by this stage all our hearts were going ten to the dozen!!!It seems that although Darrell and Nigel had recovered fairly quickly after the
mahoooosive, slight disappointment of both their applications to be the Face of Kinder 2013 being “rejected” as unsuitable, under a minor technicality, namely – that they are monkeys and not children (as required) …..
…. The Lovely Kirsten from Kinder had obviously got wind of their let down and taken it very much to heart and in an effort to help Darrell and Nigel get over their “rejection” had sent them each their very own “Totally Unofficial Faux Face of Kinder 2013” packs …… A deafening silence fell upon our kitchen as we looked at them, we were all totally overwhelmed and moved in a Hello Magazine type way.
And, we are not ashamed to say that there were several manly sniffs …. to think that someone from such a company, in the midst of a national (worldwide??) campaign could be so kind and thoughtful as to take on board Darrell and Nigel's disappointment!
However, once Nigel had regained his composure, he immediately suggested that we had …. "better get stuck in" as it would look awfully ungrateful and rude not too! It was a gift that was meant to be eaten with robust pleasure and gusto, rather than just looked at …. and it would be wicked to let them go stale …..!
