"Can you please help us to Rap, Uncle Gordon?"
I felt quite pleased that they had sought my worldly knowledge and I replied in a sage-like manner:
"Of course boys! Are you going to a party?"
"Yes," Nog nodded. "Lisa is having a party next weekend. We want to Rap like Acon!"
Ron and Nog looked slightly taken aback at this, but trotted off to the top of the field, whilst I pondered upon the strange choice of present for Lisa.
"Aaah! Good. Now pop those acorns inside the dock leaf and fasten it like this," I deftly twisted the burrs with my beak and the gift looked beautifully wrapped in no time at all.
"You know boys, I am really quite well-up with technology - I am on Facebook!" I had struggled for some more modern terminology and decided 'well-up' although a bit old-fashioned was more appropriate than 'cool'. And they would have giggled again anyway.
"You should go on Twitter, Uncle!" Ron enthused. "You need a BlackBerry."
