A few days before Christmas, Father Christmas decided to try out his new one-man flight device, with unfortunate consequences. Fox Wood was his chosen setting, and all of the foxes came out to see what all the kerfuffle was about. They gathered around Santa, as he flicked the switch on his nifty handheld flight-suit remote control to power up the suit. He then clicked the green button, to go, realising a split second too late that he’d accidentally flipped the level lever over to hyperdrive mode. In the next instant, all that remained were his two boots as he was flung at a rate of several knots high up into the sky. With a “Hohonooooooooooooo…..” trailing off into the distance, the foxes looked around amongst themselves for a few seconds, and then went about their foxy business.
Santa decided he would stick with his traditional tried and tested mode of transport when he finally returned from Jupiter.
A random Christmas tale… well, ‘Tis the Season! after all.
