‘Twas the Flash before Christmas

He slipped slowly down the sofa onto the floor. He woke with a start and saw that the party was winding down. After examining the pattern of the carpet for a few seconds, he picked himself up and made his way to the hall, swaying as he walked. ‘I’m going now. Merry Christmas everyone! See you in the New Year.’ he shouted in a slurred voice at no one in particular. He picked up his jacket from the coat tree, knocking it over in the process. Closing the door gently behind him, he staggered off into the freezing Hertfordshire night singing ‘Fairytale of New York’ stumbling over the pavement and the words. He would not be seen again until New Year.
