After a while we all began feeling the cold, so we donned jumpers and hats and sat snugly together, listening to the Galumph's hand wind-up radio and nattering about this and that.
Grumbles: Why are the lights off?
Parents: Because we are celebrating a special evening to raise awareness about global warming.
Grumbles: But why are the lights off?
Parents: Because this special event is all about minimising energy consumption, to reduce our impact on the planet.
Grumbles, behoving a sigh as though to say my goodness you people are thick and as soon as I'm older I'm going to deny being even related to you: But.Why.Are.The.Lights.OFF????
I must have remarked on how cosy! and peaceful! and lovely! and did I mention I'm really rather quite enjoying this! far too often as the evening progressed, as the Galumph finally turned to me and said "Are you going to make us do Earth Hour every Saturday night?"
Bwahahahahah! Um, yeah. Maybe?!
