Drabble: Can It Be Babies?

Tonight I’ve been compiling a ‘soundtrack album’ for ‘Tabula Avatar’ on YouTube. I have a Favourites playlist consisting entirely of tracks played by Giles in the course of the story. I haven’t managed to locate everything yet but it does include ‘Sweet Home Alabama’, ‘Sit Down’, ‘White Room’, ‘Rebel Yell’, ‘I Won’t Back Down’, ‘Battleship Chains’, and of course ‘Sunshine on a Rainy Day’. I had intended to link to it for your benefit but I am informed that no-one but me can see it. Bugger. ETA: maybe this link will work: http://www.youtube.com/profile_favorites?user=speakr2customrs

I finished this run of nights at work yesterday and I had hoped to stay up all day and get back into a diurnal sleeping pattern straight away. It didn’t work out that way; I couldn’t stay awake and had to go to bed before 5 p.m. I slept through until 1.30 a.m. and as a result I missed the BBC Children In Need event. I saw the ‘QI’ special last week on BBC4, and I’ve watched some of the highlights on the Internet during the night, and it has inspired me to do a commemorative drabble in the Olafverse. Primarily for British eyes. 100 words, R.

Can It Be Babies?

The demon smacked his lips appreciatively. “Delicious,” he praised. “A fascinating sweet and sour tang. What is it?”

“A special dish inspired by tonight’s BBC charity fundraising event,” Olaf explained. He gestured at the television. The demon looked across and saw Terry Wogan announcing the total raised so far for disadvantaged children. Pudsey Bear stood beside him. No sign yet of Natasha Kaplinsky in the promised gold lamé catsuit.

“An old Troll recipe,” Olaf went on. “Two plump toddlers, cleaned and boned, marinated with herbs and spices, and simmered in fermented honey.”

The demon groaned. “Yeah, right. Children in Mead.”
