Dexter’s Day: Chinese New Year…
Yesterday, it was the start of the Chinese New Year celebrations!
I knowed coz I was watching the TV with Daddy and the nice lady said so.
It’s the Year of the Wood Dragon, I thunk: though am a bit scared coz I’ve never seen a Dragon but one made out of wood shouldn’t be able to run very fast so I can get away!
Daddy says he’s known a few dragons: Little Granny was ‘George the Dragon’, and had a rolling pin with that name on it. Mummy even posted it to her with ‘George the Dragon’ on the envelope- and the postman knew who she was!
Mummy isn’t a dragon though Daddy says she breathes fire: I’ve not seen her do this but I thunk I’d be scared. (Daddy says, I should be!).
Little Granny isn’t scary: she comes to whisper to me when she brings my angel sisters and brothers and she’s very nice – but asks me to steal Mummy’s gin for her – and I cannot do that! Then Mummy would breathe fire!
Happy New Lunar Year! It feels like it’s going to be a happy one with lots of walks, fun and adventure – and times with my favourite people. I thunk it will be happy for all of you too – but watch out for the dragon!
