My Daddy will be pleased with me, I've made him lots of dough, a gentleman knocked on the door and seemed quite pleased to know that I was there just on my own, he had a nice big grin and said my dad had asked him round and could he please come in? He said that Daddy had for sale the laptop and TV, he gave me five whole pounds for them, Dad WILL be pleased with me. Poem by Jabo.

Ha ha! I'm sure that Daddy was very surprised ... but, perhaps, not so pleased as the child thinks!

Oh lordy, now that would be considered an 'oopsie-poopsie' @jaboUK . I'm sure Dad would be glad that you were left behind by the gentleman (in today's world), so no spanking for you. That was funny .

I am sure your dad will be annoyed that you only sold them for that amount. But wait, there are no laptops yet during his time I suppose.
