Although Jemima was thrilled with the money from the Santa Mouse rides, she was quite upset that no one had opted for a photo with Grinchy, even though they were FREE! Maybe she could convince Santa to let her hand out Grinchy buttons with the money she earned, but she wasn't sure Grinchy would get over the fact that NO ONE wanted a picture with him.
She tried to console him but he was soooo sad! It's kind of hard to tell, since his eyes are red anyway, but take our word for it. He's SAD!!!!!! "Don't worry Grinchy, you're still my best friend." whispered Jemima. It's not easy being green
Just when Jemima was ready to pack up, Erf came by on the way back to the workshop. A ride on Santa Mouse sounded like fun, but he didn't have any money to pay.
Jemima was on him like white on rice and whispered he could have a ride for free, if only he would have his picture taken with Grinchy, but not let on. Erf thought for a moment, eyeing the ragged green mouse warily, but finally consented to the deal. I mean, what's the worst that could happen?
Erf jumped on the chair an and excited Grinchy dried his eyes and moved in closer for the pic. "Say 'CHEESE'!" cried Jemima as she snapped the shot.
Nice one! We're playing in the 9th Annual Elf Antics Linky Party at DL.Art.
