The other day I received one of the most unusual gifts ever.What do you think this is?
At first I thought it might be bread, but it was too heavy. Then I thought it could be cake – a really heavy one! Actually, I had no idea! I asked my gift bearer and was told that it was a kind of log. A log? ‘Err…, OK,’ I thought, wondering what I should do with it. Then she explained: It would actually grow into lots of mushrooms. ‘Blimey! How cool is that!’ I thought. So I am now the proud soon-to-be-parent of some ‘germinating’ mushroom babies. I have to water them twice a day, sing to them and tell them bed-time stories. (OK, so maybe I don’t have to do the last two things…but it might help!) I have been giving him a shower, but he didn’t seem to be drinking, so now I am giving him a long soak, like a bath. I think he prefers swimming really, but he needs to open up his little pores and start guzzling down the water if he is to grow big and strong. Maybe I should give him a name. Whadda ya reckon? Please let me know your suggestions!
