“Crikey,” I whisper, “that’s a beauty!”
Nanners, Mr. Chimps, and I peer around the corner of our banana couch at the giant crocodile in our living room. (Ok, it’s really a sleeping dragon superbed, but we like to play pretend.)
“That bloke’s a sixteen-footer, don’t you reckon?”
Nanners nods. Mr. Chimps is to nervous to even move. This is his first time out in the bush with us.
We circle the “crocodile” and swing imaginary ropes at him. I get a top jaw ropeon with no problem, but Nanners and Mr. Chimps need a little help. With three ropes finally secure, we pounce on the “crocodile”: Nanners takes the head, Mr Chimps takes the body, and I take that massive tail. One swipe of that and I’d be hurting bad.
“Steady, mate, steady,” I warn, feeling the beast build up energy, getting ready to toss us. The dragon–I mean, croc–even blows out smoke at us, but Nanners and Mr. Chimps hold on tight. Good on them!
“Here it comes, boys, death roll!” I shriek.
We all hold on tight as (with a little help from us) the dragon bed–I mean, crocodile–rolls over and over. Mr. Chimps starts giggling, and then so does Nanners, but not me. I’m totally focused on the job at hand.
We’re in the third death roll, and finally starting to wear the croc down, when the phone rings.
“Shoot,” I say. “I forgot Arte was going to call. You fellas’ got this?”
Nanners nods, and Mr. Chimps keeps giggling. Well, they’ll never learn how to be team leader if they don’t get a little practice.
I rush into the kitchen and pick up the phone, panting a bit, “Hello?”
“Merthyn? Are you busy?”
“Well, I was wrestling an apex predator, but I could take a break if you need some help.”
“That’s great, ma boy, because I got a whole truck of Dream-o-Meter Beds to unload here.”
“Ok, Arte, I’ll be right there. Just let me help my mates release this salty.”
“Uh, ok.” Arte sounds a little confused, but then he doesn’t have much time to watch t.v.
When I go into the living room, though, I find the croc has turned back into a sleeping dragon bed....with a sleeping monkey (Nanners) on top of it and another sleeping monkey (Mr. Chimps) beside it. Oh, well. We can always play again tomorrow.
Here’s the list. I hope you enjoy the Dream-O-Meter Beds. They sure were heavy to carry into the store. Oh, and remember, crocs rule!
