Oh! Goodness, I didn’t see you there. I did have the ‘Closed’ sign up on the shop door, you know —
Ah, yes, I’d forgotten, 2:00 AM was the shop’s opening hour today. Well, I must say, I wasn’t expecting anyone in. All the same, hello there!
I suppose now that you’re here, I might as well pass along a rather important bit of information.
I’ve been told that today’s the alleged end of the world; to be honest, I’m not surprised one of these rumours is going around again. They do so often, especially at the turn of milleniums, but the ‘Y2K’ scare was only Crowley having a bit of fun, and the millennium before that was ghastly, the French were quite worried — I’m showing my age, aren’t I?
Either way, neither Crowley nor I have heard anything from our superiors, so there really is nothing to worry about this time. Adam is healthy and doing quite well, and nothing has bothered us so far.
Although, I suppose it couldn’t hurt to be extra careful…perhaps I should ask Crowley if he still has that tyre iron of his. Only in emergencies, of course! Violence is never the answer.
The hip way to express happiness these days is the thumbs-up, isn’t it? Everything will be a-okay. No need to panic, it’s all under control. Just sit back and enjoy a nice cup of cocoa to warm you in this colder weather, and read a good book for comfort. Sleeping, at this hour, might be to be recommended as well.
Goodbye, and thank you for listening!
