It started with an office email alerting us of the annual pumpkin carving competition, the prize… two free west end tickets!
They were giving out the pumpkins at 11am. I couldn’t risk not having the best pick, So I tracked down the competition manager.
We both agreed more tools were in order, so we invested for the sharpest knifes (in our budget) we could find.
There we were laughing away as we plot our free West End night and £50 bar tab.
The designs were set; Chris was going for a face
“AHH Don’t look!!” Chris yelped.
He had sliced his thumb attempting to carve the lid..and now our studio flat looked like a scene out of Saw.
Well this isn’t going to win us tickets.. I thought as I dragged him onto the bed. I gave him a tissue as a bandage and carried on with my moon.
It wasn’t long till I remembered that I’m not very good at carving pumpkins. In fact as I watched the moon’s eye fall off I realised it wasn’t going to plan.
Yes a face that should be simple.
But as I watched the whole face fall off my dreams of the West End died.
Not a great idea.
The Day Of The Competition
“The moon can be saved!” I announced when I woke up
“I really don’t think you should take it in” Chris replied.
However, I had a brain wave ; all I need was a bit of Lego.So with help from Hamley’s I smugly placed two Lego space men on my moon
2 hours later Chris texted me
So no West End tickets, Just two dodgy pumpkins
