A COUPLE are convinced their long and detailed baby story was both interesting and entertaining.
Tom Logan and Nikki Hollis believe friends in the pub were gripped by their account of their daughter’s attempts to say ‘daddy’, which lasted almost half an hour.
Hollis said: “It’s a wonderful story because Emily-Rose tries to day ‘daddy’ but it comes out as ‘taga’. Who’d have thought babies did things like that?
“I set the scene with a detailed description of Emily-Rose’s activities – crying, eating, sleeping – then launched into the main story. I should probably become a children’s author like Roald Dahl.
“You could tell everyone was enjoying it because they kept nodding slightly. Martin in particular loved it. The grin on his face was absolutely fixed.”
Logan said: “Nikki told the story brilliantly but I added some great impressions of Emily-Rose saying ‘taga’. I said it about 30 times because Sally laughed politely every time.
“We’re all meeting again in a fortnight for a meal so we’ll probably tell them our other excellent story about how we bought a toy xylophone but she’s a bit young for it.”
Friend Martin Bishop said: “Oh Christ.”
