A Bag N Box Story
This is very useful for those unable to sleep!!!
One Christmas some friends were visiting us on Boxing day, so I went out to look for some Christmas boxes for them. My mate was an ex-boxer, who by now was a bag of bones, and his wife was a bit of an old bag, in fact an old wind bag from Bagdad. I managed to find him a pair of boxer-shorts (big baggy boxes shorts) and her a pair of black Reeboks. The shorts came in a bag, a big blue bag and the and the Reeboks came in a box, a Reeboks box. When I got out of the shop I decided that it would be easier to carry them if I took the baggy boxer shorts out of the bag, and the Reeboks out of the Reeboks box.
As you can imagine the baggy boxer shorts went into the Reeboks box with no bother and I even got the Reeboks into into the baggy boxer short blue bag, but when I tried to put the baggy boxer shorts in the Reeboks box, back into the baggy boxer short blue bag - the bag burst.
Are you following me? So I took the baggy boxer shorts out of the Reebok box and put them back in their own burst baggy boxers blue bag along with the Reeboks, then I put the burst blue baggy boxers bag, containing the Reeboks and the baggy boxer shorts into the Reeboks box.
Having done this it occurred to me that I had re-bagged the baggy boxer shorts into the baggy boxers blue bag and re-boxed the Reeboks in the Reeboks box..... It was at this moment that the Reeboks box broke - so - I was now in the awkward position of having the baggy boxer shorts and the Reeboks in the burst baggy boxers blue bag all in the broken Reeboks box.
Phew, Luckily I spotted a shop called "the Bag N Box Man" which sold loads of boxes and lots of bags. I found a really beautiful big box which I bought to put the broken Reeboks box containing the baggy boxer shorts and the Reeboks in the burst baggy boxers blue bag in.
Life was now improving. The nice man at "the Bag N Box Man" till put the new box into a nice big blue bag, and now I had one bag! So I took my "Bag N Box Man" bag, containing the Reebok box and the baggy boxers short blue bag and contents and put it in the boot of my car, its a big boxy boot with bags of room, which is just as well as it was nearly full of bags and boxes of stuff that I had bought earlier in Boots, like a handbag and a lunch box and my cricket box was in there as well as parts off my horse box. But mostly it was full of bags and boxes from Boots.
Did I mention earlier that the Reeboks were in fact boots, training boots (for the old boot from Bagdad) I then proceeded to load the blue "Bag N Box Man " bag with the beautiful big "Bag N Box Man" box containing the broken Reeboks box with the re-boxed Reeboks boots and the re-bagged baggy boxer shorts (for the ex-boxer) in the burst blue baggy boxers bag on top of the Boots bags and boxes in the back of my boot which had before then bags of space. This all took place in the West Country town of BOX where I was parked on a box- junction, and when spotted by a traffic warden I cannot tell you what I called her.
