Surprisingly she does have a good voice!
Who'd have thought?

The Elderly said...

ammmmm i dunno, give us a clue?

gnome said...

How?

What do you mean?

Who are you?

What's this?

The Elderly said...

thats a keyboard... gnome are you okay? (gnomes face has turned pallid palishly yellow)

when was the last time you ate something?

gnome said...

It was back in 2004. I ate two Olympic athletes. And yesterday's tequilla was definitely evil. I just drank ONE glass and started sweating, feeling dizzy and trembling... That must have been the source of all this confusion.

Right.

Now... That's a keyboard you say?

The Elderly said...

yes...... you've been drinking home brewed tequila again.... Gnome thats not safe......

yes thats a keyboard, and beside it thats a mouse, here let me show you..... see the way the pointer moves around the screen?

(turns to look at Gnome, who is staring at the ceiling)

Gnome your acting very strangely..... here sit down..... this is a chair...... bend your knees, steady does it.

Can i get you something, maybe call your doctor?

gnome said...

Dont wanna eat doctor....
Nor keyboard...

What's that up there?

bleuurghhhhh...

The Elderly said...

thats the ceiling gnome and the hangy down thing in the middle is a bulb..... good no doctor eating, and keyboards are not very tasty.....

(rings gnomes mammy....... mrs gnome..... son.....worried.......not eaten..... diabetic......... sugar withdrawal....thank you.....hangs up)

just a tick gnome...... i've just got to fix up your favourite desert.....

gnome said...

A teacher? Yummy...

Or to rephrase that:

Teacherssss yummmmy.

The Elderly said...

no Gnome, teachers.....bellyache, now you don't want a belly ache do you?

give me a few more minutes, mamma gnome has given me a recipe that should see you as right as rain....... gnome keyboards...... bellyache

gnome said...

No bellyache... I'll just sit & wait. Right?

The Elderly said...

very good....... just a few minutes more.... (lifts gnomes head off the keyboards........) here try this.....

(moves keyboard out of the way, puts gnomes head on pillow)

gnome said...

nice... Stay here it's nice...

The Elderly said...

you've become quite attached to that keyboard haven't you? now if you could just move your nose..... off the return key....... there thats better....

gnome said...

But why? I mean the shift kay doesn't seem like te proper place for a gnome's regal nose.

Still, if you say its better, I believe you...

The Elderly said...

it's a very cosy shift key..... not like the angular black sharp one your used to ..... look see it fully support the weight of your left nostril, just don't sneeze...........JUST YET!

you could have warned me...... here (hands gnome a tissue......)

The Elderly said...

munch...... nibble..... crunch...

:)

gnome said...

:)

got some water?

The Elderly said...

(turns on garden hose...........) plenty...... where do you want it?

gnome said...

Well in a glass and then running down my throat would be nice...

The Elderly said...

.....!... right... sorry.......

(turns of garden hose, fills glass of water, greases the outside of the glass.......) okay open wide...

gnome said...

Would you mind if I actually tried to do this myself? It wouldn't be offensive would it, oh kind friend?

The Elderly said...

well if you will insist on doing it all by yourself go ahead, just don't come running to me when you spill it.... (moves gnome away from keyboards)

gnome said...

Ooppss..

There go another 7 euros...

The Elderly said...

....... for shame.... well the spacebar was sticking.... still really look at the front of your new t-shirt......

gnome said...

where exactly would that be?

The Elderly said...

the side of the t-shirt without the label....... really gnome your mother shouldn't have let you out like this....

gnome said...

I constatly remind her..

The Elderly said...

here you can wear this, till your t-shirt dries... really!

(passes ghome a t-shirt with a marlyn monroe face on it....)

gnome said...
