I’d rather not live in a tea chest.

"Ferdinand?"
"Yes Lil."
"Ferd!"
"Yes Lil."

"Don’t mean to appear ungrateful or any thing! But I’d rather not live in a tea chest. I know you’ve been to a lot of trouble, but I’d rather lay on a radiator. This radiator if you don’t mind..."

"But Lil..."

"Ferd, I know  you’ve worked very hard. I’m not sure I could cope with the damp. I have a bit of Arthur Itus. Made him walk with a limp too and he was famous."
"Who?"
"Arthur! It's shocking the dull ache you get in your bones."
"Irish?"
"Did you know him?"
"No."
"Came from Blarney..."
"Lil. You may not a have a choice! You may have to..."

Glad to know you're planning ahead, Ferd. But we're not sure all of you can fit into a tea chest. (not unless you found a really big one, anyway)

Hoping nothing goes wrong enough you need to find out.

We have a feeling that there really is no need for your "tea chest fortress" Ferdi. If it came to it our mom would come and get you...all of you...and you could live in America with us! Right mom? Mom sez we need to talk...
