Response 3: My lucky day?

I’m not the jealous type, but I’m sure you will understand why I envy the rest of my kind...

I’m 30 years old; getting on a bit now - not many get to my age, but then again I’ve not moved out of the house for 10 years! The furthest I’ve been is out of this rack when the grandchildren use me as a pretend sword, highlight of my week!

I often daydream that I belong to Mary Poppins, imagine the places I would have visited the journeys I would have experienced, or even like the youngsters these days, all multi-coloured and cool while I’m dull with holes.

Oh my it’s my lucky day I’ve been taken out of the rack and heading for the door, I’m bursting with excitement, its sunny outside I wonder why he needs me...
