this is what happens when monsters go bad

You can't turn your back for a minute around here without something going on...

'What's this?' yelled the christmas monsters when they saw a package wrapped in Christmas paperIt must be for us they thought, so they set to opening the package straight away. They got themselves into their best tug of war position and pulled and pulled until they finally managed to get the mysterious thing out of the paper Tug of war can be really hard when you have no hands so the monsters were especially pleased with themselves for this.

Whilst Monsdeer and Abomster discussed that what they thought might be in the package, Pudster guessed that it was most likely a monster sleeping bag, so he tried it out for sizeMonsdeer and Abomster feeling a pang of jealousy at this ingenious discovery by Pudster said that his idea was stupid, and that he was testing it out wrongly. They infact thought that it was a bed for all 3 of them, so they all got into the top and tried it out
With all the fuss of the big monster bed they had almost missed the small blue gift poking out of the pocket. Monsdeer fleetingly wondered why the bed even had a pocket but the rustling of the blue paper made him forget this thought just as quickly as it had arrived.

The monster trio ripped at the paper and found the most wonderful jewels and the jewels smelled sooo good that they just couldn't help themselves and dived right inThey gorged themselves on the jewels until there was nothing left but the ripped up paper They were all feeling pretty happy with themselves until...

Oh no! The jewels must have been poisoned because their tummies were hurting. They rushed off the the bathroom and, well, we'll leave that to your imagination but it wasn't a pretty sight, and even monda the brave felt like she needed to vomThe monster trio felt pretty sorry for themselves so went off to bed. Not in their new bed though, because frankly they were scared that the jewels might make a reappearance, if you know what I meanThe thing that the monsters didn't know was that the jewels hadn't been poisoned after all, and they weren't in fact jewels after all! They were roses chocolates and the thing that made them so poorly was the wrappers - everyone knows you're not supposed to eat those.

So what is the moral of this story?
Never eat the wrappers?
Monsters with no arms can't possibly have a tug of war?
Don't open a parcel that clearly doesn't belong to you?
Monsters can't read labels?

We'll if you don't know the moral of the story then you need to go away and have a long hard think about it... tsk some people.

No monsters were seriously harmed in the making of this story.
Thanks to monkee maker for supplying the props, oh and also for the lovely monster sleeping bag.

Very, very, very, very funny! Those poor, misguided monsters! I do hope their tummies are feeling a little better now!

P.S. word verif. is "rqwdrgwl" which sounds pretty much like the sort of noise a felt christmas monster might make after discovering the ingested jewels were poisonous!

Fab story, Monda! I'm loving that tug-o-war picture :)

I'm glad the bag arrived safely, and I hope you like it .... with or without the monster vomit!

that was so funny, poor monsters! I really fancy some roses now I've seen some....but my cupboards are bare (I have a slightly mouldy rich tea biscuit...maybe if I close my eyes and try really hard it'll taste the same?!) Have a good time at the NEC tomorrow!!!! :D
ps my craft fair today was pretty dire, lots of people poking the stock on every stall, then asking if we were there next month....when they'd be christmas shopping. Grrrrrrr!!!! Still, it got me out of the house!
