Extremely disappointed at not having seen Joseph beat the Musical Director to a pulp in defence of her honour, the BVM turns serenely to the packing of the suitcases

Joe darling, don't forget to phone the hotel. And for goodness sake, don't let the sheep hear you making the booking. We don't want to end up sharing a room with an animal now, do we ?

Musical Director! I think a rousing rendition of Sheep may Safely Graze is called for. [Big Grin] [Killing me]

Looks at scroll.

Looks at crumpled shirt... looks at iron... looks at Joseph... looks at iron....

..... remembers that Joseph could have thrown her out when she told him the news.... and he hasn't mentioned the credit card bill once.....

..... picks up iron, sighs, and makes a start on the shirt. After all, she wants him to look his best in the posh hotel as she walks in to dinner on his arm

Well, in the spirit of the census, I've been counting.

It turns out, I have lots of money, loads of slaves, more than a few concubines and one very evil nature.

Wasn't able to locate any scruples however.

Must've lost them somewhere along the way.

"O", eh? Oh.

Or "OAO", even! [Killing me]

Anyway, thanks, I'll write it in. Are you sure you don't want to call the evil twin "Cyril"? I think it would be a better name. Although I suppose if it's a girl that might be a bit awkward...

Ah, what the heck. In the absence of ultrasound, we'll just go with the assumption that it's a boy. So, let's see...

"Unborn Children - List In Bold Type Below"

That's JESUS - J-E-S-U-S
and CYRIL - C-Y-R-I-L

There.

Taps Mary's pregnant bump.

Hear that, kid? We're calling you Cyril!

By the way, Mary, I've been meaning to ask - you don't mind me talking to them like this, do you?

Looks at Joseph....

Well actually....

Thinks better of it, after all, he's taken the news about the babies so well, and is even getting a bit paternal towards them, and he hasn't even mentioned the phone bill

...well, actually, Joseph darling, would you like me to get you a coffee while you're filling in those terrible forms?

Actually, a nice cup of Earl Grey is what I want right now. Two sugars, skimmed milk. And a Digestive, if you can rustle one up.

Watches Mary walk out.

And then we'll have a chat about the phone bill.

Thanks dear. Now, there's something I've been meaning to ask you about.

Picks up first sheet of 300-page phone bill.

Why, exactly, are there over two hundred charges here for texts to - and I quote - "the Celestial Kingdom"?

Do you have any idea how much such long-distance (we're talking crossing metaphysical barriers here) texting costs?

No, good point. I must do that soon. Can't have us just turning up and finding no room at the Plaza!

First, though, I think it's time I treated you to something. You've been working yourself far too hard. Honestly, I wish you'd stop dashing about, trying to do everything. I know you're keen to make me comfortable, but I'm an active man - let me do things! Laziness is anathema to me.

Anyway, what do you say to a nice plate of my pappardelle with lobster, butter and spinach hearts?

Oh Joseph! [Love] [Love] [Love]

(See Miffy... I told you so he wasn't an MCP really [Razz] )

But actually, I think I'd rather have a honey and gherkin sandwich if you wouldn't mind, my sweet.

Hmmm... well, I can't say I'm thrilled at the prospect of preparing one of those.

But if it'll make you feel better, why not?

(Oh, and what does "MCP" stand for? [Confused] )

Oh...er... nothing my sweet. Just something the Director said earlier... Nothing to worry your handsome manly head about, you have too much to concentrate on as it is with those horrid census forms.

Now, are we all ready for the journey?

As Joseph leaves to prepare a light snack, Mary suddenly has a thought

It's a shame trains haven't been invented yet. I wonder whether Joseph's thought about transport. I bet he has, I'm sure he'll have booked me a sedan-taxi, he's so thoughtful like that. [Love]

Enter stage left, with aforementioned sandwich - no thanks to the apparently absent stage director. Pah.

Ready for the journey? Looks like it, doesn't it? I've asked Isaac from number 5 to water the plants while we're gone. We're taking the cat with us. The bags are packed. Passports in my pocket. Let's see... anything else?

No, I don't think so!

Oh, I'd better go check on Flossy before going to bed. You're ok with riding my donkey all the way to Bethlehem, right?

Exit stage right, humming "Wonderful World".

You expect me to believe that in light of the fact that you've named me Cyril?

Donkey???? [Roll Eyes]

Oh Joseph, darling... you are such a tease! I nearly fell for that one! [Big Grin]

Yes, or I'll put your head in a vice and make you believe it.

Your choice.
