Did you read about the monster in the workshop?
Well, I went to investigate and found out that the monster was not very scary at all. In fact it wasn’t even a monster.
I ran out to the yard when I saw the Egyptian Mummy. It was small and making some weird moaning sounds.
‘Hello, can I help you?’ I asked.
It turned around to face me and mumbled something. I began to laugh because even though it was a mumble I knew the voice.
‘Scunner? Is that you?’ I asked. The figure nodded.
Kissy and Clumsy were standing behind me. They moved over and began to unwrap him. Clumsy grabbed one end of the wrappings and pulled very quickly. Poor old Scunner went spinning around like a top. Eventually he was free but very, very dizzy.
‘What happened Scunner?’ Kissy asked.
‘Och, I was printing out the lists and it was too slow.’ He muttered. ‘I had a wee shot of fixing the printer and the paper started coming out too fast.’
He looked at me, big tears in his eyes.
‘It started coming oot really quickly. I tried to stop it. I got caught up and ended up covered in paper. I wanted help but when everyone saw me they ran away.’
‘We thought you were a Mummy.’ Clumsy said.
‘I’m a man elf, not a Mommy!’ Scunner folded his arms and turned away. He stamped his feet and began to grumble.
‘A very handsome man Elf.’ Kissy planted a big kiss on his cheek. Scunner went redder than Rudolph’s nose. I explained what they had meant and he began to chuckle.
‘Och, right. So, Santa, do you have any more jobs for me?’
“Oh yes, Scunner”, I replied, “I have a very special job for you.”
P.S. I have a very special job for Scunner. It’s for something that only happens every few years though. Can you guess what it is? You can click here to tell me about it or, scroll down to see what other people have written!
