Last year it was a few days late, this year it came 2 days early, but hey, we are not complaining. It’s a huge package, gift wrapped and all and it nearly doesn’t fit in my room, a perfect birthday gift. There is one slight issue though …
“Oh, I know that one” Slarti said rather convincingly “Time lock.”
“Great” I said.
“How do we open it?” Davy and I said simultaneously, both rather exited.
“You can’t” Slarti said.
“What do you mean?” I asked him.
“You can’t open it. It will open itself.”
“When the time is right.”
“And when is that?” Davy asked, rather impatiently.
“We’ll have to wait and see” Slarti said.
“What?” I said.
“Ahrrr who would send something like that?!” Davy said.
“Well, … ” Slarti said “But you know, it’s a great gift, we can wait for the time to be right. It is not going anywhere now is it?”
No it is not. So we will wait for the time to be right. And when that day comes (hopefully soon! Davy shouts), we’ll tell you what’s in there. We have no real idea either, apart from that we know for sure that it is something great.
Now: beam yourself a year back in time and listen. It’s still all too beautiful.
We hope you have a nice day. We’ll have a little party, and then we are going to make some plans for the coming year.
