“Oh hello dear…what are you doing out of bed?”
“Looking for you! What on earth are you doing?”
“They’re not fireworks. They’re flares…emergency flares!”
“But they’re pretty! Have you come to enjoy the party?”
“You woke me. Give me those, I mean it, now! Right now!”
“They’re mine! Watch this!”
“It’s the last one!”

I'd love to hear from you...
