A Party as big as this needs rather a lot of food.
A Party as mixed up as this needs many different kinds of food.
Triflora is very good at FOOD. Many Beings bring their own. The Dragons are there heating the fires day and night for 5 days.
The Teddy Bears bring their picnics and share them with anyone who would like some.
Food is not really a problem – except for a few things now and then. The Brownies can be problems. Not all of them. Just a few. Montrose is one of the rascals. He waits till the Cats are asleep and helps himself to whatever he likes. Montrose eats and eats even though he is so little. Then he jumps up and down as though he had not eaten one bite.
The thing about Food at the Party is that everyone is welcome to eat whatever they wish but it really is bad manners to sneak in and eat somebody else’s meal. Montrose just cannot help himself. So it seems !
Poppy has been out and about before the Party, making sure that absolutely NOONE ate anyone else. Not even a nibble. She made that very clear to the Wolf.
She made it very clear to the Wolf that all 3 Wizards were working together as well as Nana and her Friends. They would NOT be pleased if they heard that anyone had been consumed.
The Wolf got the message. No eating anyone or even trying to.
Poppy brought him some pizza and wine to seal the deal.
TWO FOOD RULES FOR THE PARTY.
NO NICKING ANYONE ELSE’S MEAL.
NO EATING ANYONE ELSE. NOT EVEN A SNACK.
The Syrian Goat is perhaps the most difficult to feed.
Who would expect Goats to be difficult ?
Most goats will eat anything and everything.
Most Goats will eat your socks or your garden. They will eat the rubbish in your bin or your front fence. They will eat the sky, the land, the dirt at your feet. They will eat everything. That’s why they lock themselves up at night so that they don’t eat EVERYTHING. For the Party, the promise the Spider that they will not do that. They will eat the rubbish. And the Goat food. But they will not try to eat they sky – or anything else that is not Food.
But the Syrian Goat is the opposite. The Syrian Goat is very polite and will not eat anything at all. It makes other people depressed. They offer the Syrian Goat the most tasty food they have, but she simply says No. Thank you very much. I am not hungry.
She has made a promise today to eat SOMETHING. Even just a nibble. The Spiders were not going to let her in through the Webs otherwise. She makes us too sad ! said the Spiders. So she promised to eat. We will see what we can prepare for her.
