Message from a Hostel – Shaken not stirred

“Alistair what are you up too?  Will you stop pointing your finger as if you’re shooting some secret agents, jumping over the couch and making those explosive sounds,” said Nora.

“My name is Bond, Alistair Shackleton Jones Bond at your service Miss Moneypenny,” replied Alistair.

“Alistair will you please stop throwing shapes in the sitting room and settle down. I am trying to write my business plan for the oil business,” replied Nora.  “The only bond you are Alistair is a right Prize Bond.”

Alistair starts singing, “Ding Da Da Ding Ding Da Da Ding da da Ding Ding Da Da Ding Ding, Ding Ding Ding……”

“I knew Alistair, I shouldn’t have let you go to the new Bond movie ‘Skyfall’ with the Doc Higgins,” said Nora.

“Surely you mean Dr No, the man with the golden gun Miss Moneypenny,” replied Alistair.

“I have heard it all now Alistair. So what are you calling the Manager?” asked Nora

“Don’t mess with ‘M’, she is the boss lady,” replied Alistair.

Alistair starts singing again, “Ding Da Da Ding Ding Da Da Ding Da Da Ding Ding Da Da Ding Ding, Ding Ding Ding……”

“For feck sake Alistair, put your finger away and go shoot someone else, I have oil business to get sorted” said Nora.

“Watch out Miss Moneypenny or you might just get painted all in gold,” replied Alistair.

“Right Alistair Prize Bond, the only painting around here to be done is you finishing the painting of the garden shed, that you started on last week,” said Nora.

“Okay Nora okay I’ll just head up and see the Doc” replied Alistair, as he shot the lock off the front door with his finger.

Nora immediately phones the Manager.  Hi, I must be talking to ’M’,” said Nora.

“M, who’s ‘M’ Nora,” asked the Manager.

“Your new name according to Alistair who is on his way up to see the Doc and he thinks he is James Bond,” replied Nora.

“The Doc is out in the shed working on his new model of the Higulater,” replied the Manager. “Nora, I think I see Alistair walking up the driveway; he’s just after shooting the neighbour’s cat and pretending to blow up our side gate with an explosive”

Nora, he’s heading straight into the shed to Doc. What do you want me to do?” asked the Manager.  As she hears Alistair singing“Ding Da Da Ding Ding Da Da Ding da da Ding Ding Da Da Ding Ding, Ding Ding……” as he passed the back door.

“The world is not enough for that fella,” replied Nora.  “As long as the Doc and Alistair Prize Bond don’t get into any more trouble like they did before it will be alright. Send the Spy who loves me home for his dinner later,” said Nora.

“Will do Nora,” replied the Manager as she watched the Doc chasing Alistair out of the shed and shooting at him with his finger.
