Fame At Last!

So I’m making my way home from me mate’s house, just down the road, and there’s all these cars pulled over by me Da’s land. Strange because I rarely get to see one on me way home.

Today there’s what? Ten or more, all pulled over by the edge of the road. I mean this place, you couldn’t even call it a village really. One pub, a shop that tries to sell a bit of everything and that’s it. Apart from the farms and a couple o’ cottages.

There’s not much to see here apart from rocky fields and sheep. P’rhaps they’re a tour, got lost or somethin’. Anyway, just to be safe, I make my way up the opposite side of the road, crossing over just in time to dart up the driveway.

Has somethin’ happened while I’m out? Nah, they’d have given me a ring on th’ mobile, sure they would.

I open th’ door and me Da is standin’ by the window with his cup o’ tea in hand. “How’d it go, Aiden?” he asks, although I can tell his mind is elsewhere right now.

Ah, you know, ‘twas fine. Scored meself a few points. What’s goin’ on here then. There’s cars all down the road?”

You know, that’s just what I was wonderin’ meself? They’ve been there for ages, some of ‘em. Then some go and more pull up.” Da scratched his head in confusion.

Trish, me older sister, came in then. “I can answer that, Da! We’ve gone viral. Look!”

We all gathered round and tried to see just what she was on about.

Emerald Goes Purple!’

A New Breed!’

Pulling The wool!’

There were similar headlines, all in the same vein. All about sheep. And then I got to see the pictures and finally it clicked. There were white ones, black ones and single purple one, standing in the flock.

Fame at last! We were put on the map. All because of a trip with th’ sheep dip!
