Ava: Twas the news before Christmas, and all through the office,
Not a creature was newsworthy, not even the…..boffice????
I should’ve thought more carefully before I started that. But it’s the end of the year, the UK election last week was horrible, and I’m pretty sure British culture is entirely built up on the principle of phoning it in on the last day at work (and failing to own up to the horrors of our colonial past).
Quinns: Ava, don’t talk about phoning it in at work while I’m here! I didn’t get you a Christmas present, but if I *had* I would now pitch it out of my window, in anger.
Ava: Let’s get this news down this chimney, and hope someone’s left us a mince pie and a carrot.
