Mr Watson, come here, I need you!

Excuse me?

Hello?

Hello?

Ah. Mr Watson?

No, I'm not Mr Watson. And what are you doing in my bath tap?

Hello there. I didn't know anyone else was on the telephone.

On the what?

The telephone. I've just invented it. So ... did something ring?

No, nothing rang. what are you talking about? Why should something ring? I'm talking to my bath tap and I feel like an idiot.

There must be a fault with your plumbing.

Now look here! Here I was, relaxing in my bath with my rubber duck, and you suddenly appear in my bath tap and have the audacity to make pronouncements that my plumbing's at fault!

I must have tapped the wrong number ha ha h-

And I don't recall booking a comedian to entertain me while I perform my ablutions.

Sorry. I was only trying to give someone a ring.

A ring? What do you mean, a ring?

It's the terminology I've just invented. When I call someone - using this telephone - I ring them.

You ring them? You just ring people's bath taps when they're minding their own business? Who do think you are, ringing people in this way? What's your name?

Bell.

That's enough. I'm pulling the plug.

Thank you. No, I don't have any more at the moment, Tora. I only seem to be able to think these things up once in a Blue Moon.

Anyway, a Merry Christmas to one and all!

Thank you, Professor T, for the delightful tale. Since I'm home, I shared it with my mother, who also enjoyed it. So thank you from both of us!

Merry christmas and blessings of the season to one and all.
