It Made A Most Unusual Noise When It Landed
Our friend the ‘Gadget Man’ always has the latest gizmo. He enjoys showing us how they work and how amazingly useful/clever/cute or funny they are.
One New Year’s Eve he could hardly wait for us to all to get a glass of champagne in our hands before dashing in to his office and returning with what Santa had brought him for Xmas – a remote controlled toy helicopter.
Of course, a demonstration was demanded. We stood back a little while he got it started. There was a general cheer at ‘lift-off’, then it flew above the lounge, narrowly cleared the candles on the dining table and circumnavigated the light fittings. Maybe he lost concentration on his remote control, or maybe a battery ran out, but it made a most unusual noise when it landed – a sort of ‘plop’ into the guacamole dip!
