  • THE STORY OF EDDY!
  •  
  • One morning a women woke up and ran into the bathroom where she proceeded to be violently sick. After returning to the bedroom she told her husband that she thinks she's pregnant. The next day the lady went to the doctor and was told that she definitely was. Well over the next few months the lady became very ill, her morning sickness used to last all day she had cramp, back ache and swollen ankles everything that could go wrong was going wrong. She was even rushed to hospital twice as they thought she was going to have a miscarriage. So her doctor suggestd that when her time was near they will take her into hospital and deliver the baby surgically. Well the day finally arrived the lady was in the operating theater and the father was outside. After a while the surgeon came out and asked him to come in, 'has the wife had the baby'? he asked. 'Well' said the surgeon she has had something I just haven't worked out what it is yet. Back in the theater the nurse had just finished washing and cleaning it up, Bloody hell exclaimed the surgeon it's just a head!  At that point the head began to cry, well it must be alive said the father it's crying, Oh yes! Said the nurse in fact it's in perfect health.its got everything heart lungs liver kidneys there all there in the head, It's even got a little willy under it's chin. It's a boy said the dad a son, just what I always wanted. What do you mean said the surgeon just what you always wanted you can't take it home, 'Why not'? Said the dad, but it's just a head said the surgeon what can you do with it, I don't care said the dad he's my son and I love him so I'm taking him home. When he gets him home he gives him a bottle and stands him on a silver tray on the mantle piece. You're my son and I love you and I'm going to call you Eddy! said his dad.
  • Two days later the mans wife return's from hospital as yet she hasn't seen Eddy as she was still under sedation in the hospital when he took him home.
  •  The surgeon has told her all about his condition so she knew what to expect, come and meet our son Eddy, he said as she entered the hallway, his wife just gave a sideways glance as she walked through to the living room. I'm not looking after that she said so either he goes or I do! Well you had better get your bags packed then because Eddy is staying here he said. So his wife leaves him and he's left to bring up Eddy as a one parent family, He takes Eddy everywhere with him round the shops and down the pub, He even joined gingerbread to try to get a better social life for himself. After six months of looking after Eddy he is getting a bit fed up. So he decides to get a live in nanny to look after him so he can go back to work. Now that the nanny was looking after Eddy he didn't have much more to do with him. The first four years past and Eddy turned out to be a very clever child. He could speak perfectly after only ten months. By the end of his second year he could do all his times tables and read any book that was put in front of him, after the end of his forth year he could speak French and was composing music on a mouth organ.
  • Eddy his dad and the nanny go for a short holiday to Edingburgh, while there away Eddy's dad does some serious thinking and decides to dismiss the nanny on their return. He gives her a months wages in Lou of notice and a very good reference. He was now able to hire a proper teacher to live in and startEddy's Education So once again he didnt have much to do with Eddy and left it all to the teacher. A few more years pass andEddy kept on improving. Eddy was now eleven years old and his teacher thought now would be a good time for Eddy to try and sit his GCSE exams, she knew he must have a good chance of success.
  •  To the amazement of his dad Eddy got  A plus in all five exams, on hearing just how good his son was he decided he must do all he could to help him. So Eddy's dad gets a part time job and with his other job he is now working sixteen hours a day and is earning enough to put Eddy through college and then university. Once again many years pass and now Eddy is almost twenty it is the last day of term andEddy is leaveing the university. So his dad smartens him up a bit and goes with him for the prize giving on his last day Eddy is sitting on his dads lap in his new hat box in the main hall when his name is called out, so his dad takes him up on the stage amid cheers and applause. Eddy is awarded with certificates honors degress and letters after his name. After leaving the hallEddy's dad takes him for a few pints to celebrate. While sitting in the pub a friend of his dads comes over. I suppose it will be boring for you sitting at home all day now Eddy he says, Oh I won't be sitting at home said Eddy. I have a job I start work on Monday, the man looked amazed "Where the hell did you get a job"? he asked. In the school down the road replied Eddy.  I'm the new Head! So on Monday morning Eddy's dad takes him to school and sits him on the desk in his hat box and returns for him at four o clock. After six months his dad asks him how he is liking the job. It's great dad, no worries said Eddy. Another six months go by and one day when his dad comes to the school to pick him up. Eddy is sitting on his desk covered in mud and crying, what's the matter son? Said his dad. Well it's the last day of term said Eddy and some of the lads got a bit carried away and took me out for a game of football. Have they hurt you son, asks his dad? No, I'm just a bit muddy that's all. 'Ok son, cheer up I'll take you for a couple of drinks, it's your twenty first birthday tomorrow.
  •  During the evening Eddy cheered up and they both got well drunk and did not leave until closing time, on the way homeEddy's dad was singning his head off. Eddy didn't bother, well he had nothhing for his head to come off. When they got home he said goodnight son and put the lid on his hat box. The next morning Eddy's dad wakes him up saying good morning son happy birthday here's your present ! Eddy is all excited as he rips open his present with his teeth saying what have you got for me dad, what have you got? 
  • Oh, bloody hell dad said Eddy. not another new hat! and his face was not very happy, As that's all he ever got another new hat! But he soon got over the disappointment and was okay for a couple of weeks. But then his dad noticed that he was starting to look miserable again. What's the matter son, you don't look very happy said his dad. Well it's like this dad I want a girlfriend! What am I going to do now thought his dad! after thinking for a while, I'll tell you what Eddy we'll go down the park, There is always nice girls in the park. Okay dad said Eddy, so his dad gave him a wash and shave brushed his teeth and combed his hair. Then he put him in a new hatbox and took him to the park. They sat on a bench near the lake and Eddy's dad read the newspaper to him. Just the Headlines of course. After a while a girl was walking towards them, Here's one dad chat her up for me said Eddy. So Eddy's dad gets up and asks the girl if she would mind talking to him for a while, Not at all said the girl, Everybody knewEddy and his dad, ButEddy had never spoken to this girl before although he had seen her around. So his dad goes and sits on another bench to carry on reading his newspaper.Eddy and the girl were chatting about university and music for quite a while. Eddy kept looking up adoringly at her from his hatbox, I quite fancy her he thinks to himself. What's your name love asks Eddy? It's Edna she replied, Eddy andEdna well our names are a good match anyway. After a while she says well Eddy I've got to be going now, I would like to see you again saidEddy if you don't mind, Okay Eddy I will give my phone number to your dad and he can ring me for you. So the next morning Eddy is very excited. Ring Edna for me dad, good god Eddy you only seen her yesterday.I know, but I want to see her go on phone her dad. So he phonesEdna and she agrees to meet him again in the park. Well this went on every single day for six months, she really thought the world of Eddy and he was head over chin in love with her.
  • Then one dayEdna goes to the park at the usual time and Eddy is not there, she waits for half an hour but still he doesn't show up. Edna is now getting rather worried so she phones his house and gets no answer, then she goes round there and there is nobody in, Well the next day the very same thing happened , which made her worry even more,So she goes to the park again the day after but this time she takes her friend along for a bit of moral support, but still Eddy doesn't show up! Perhaps he's dumped you said her friend, don't be daft how can he dump me? He can't give me the boot or the elbow. 
  • So Edna runs out of the park crying, she is walking round town not knowing what to do when she bumps into Eddy's dad coming out of the betting shop. She starts to cry and asks why hasn'tEddy been coming to the park? He told me he loved me!Eddy is dead said his dad he caught a cold and died! I don't believe you you're telling fibs said Edna! Why doens't he want to see me anymore? I'm not telling fibs said Eddy's dad, he caught a cold but it went straight to his head and killed him! I am burying him in the morning, soEdna runs away crying! On his way home Eddy's dad calls into the pub for a beer, sorry to hear about your son said the Landlord.
  • We had a whip round and this should be enough to buy him a Head stone. On the way home he calls into a shop and buys a new hatbox to bury him in. 
  •  So early the next morning about six o clock he takes Eddy and climbs over the wall of the cemetery, he finds a nice shady spot near a tree and digs a grave for him. after burying him and filling in the hole he leans on his shovel and starts to cry. Well Eddy you're my son and I love you! But I am very disappointed in you, you have really let me down after everything I have done for you and the first class education I gave you,
  •  you still ended up as,   As just another  DEAD HEAD.
