Charlotte in the dance studio

Vampire hunter Dracul Van Helsing entered the room known as the dance studio in the English country manor and estate he had been staying in for the past week.

The country squire and his wife who owned the estate were big fans of Latin and Ballroom Dancing.

And therefore owned their own dance studio.

“Hello, Miss Charlotte,” Van Helsing said to the woman as he entered the dance studio.

“Hello, Mr. Van Helsing,” Charlotte smiled.

“Is the ghost of the Emperor Napoleon around?” Van Helsing asked.

“He’s apparently down in London to see Trafalgar Square,” Charlotte answered.

“Well, that should prove interesting,” Van Helsing commented.

“And Squire Hawkins and his wife are visiting relatives,” Charlotte noted.

“So we’re alone on the Estate then?” Van Helsing sat down on a chair.

“Andrea Angelicus the Phoenix woman is not around?” Charlotte inquired.

“No, she’s darting back and forth across the globe,” Van Helsing explained, “And using the Houdini-Tesla-Pantages-Welles-Lamarr Magic Lantern projector for time travel.”

“Time travel?” Charlotte was curious.

“Yes, by time traveling, she gave lasting fame to an artist who died young by the name of Henri Gris,” Van Helsing explained, “By posing for his most famous portrait painting entitled The Woman of Midnight. The painting has now been acquired by the Dashwood Forrest Art Gallery in London and will soon be available for public viewing.”

“So, seeing as how we have the house to ourselves, what shall we do, Van Helsing?” Charlotte asked.

“Dance,” Van Helsing smiled as he put on an old LP record of Johann Strauss’ The Blue Danube.

. . .

Set Enterprises’ eccentric scientist Dr. Marmalade Montague was walking the streets of London with Extremely Curious George the stegosaurus who was genetically created by Set Enterprises’ chief scientist Dr. Cadbury Rocher.

“Well, George,” Dr. Montague commented, “We seem to be getting a lot of stares from passers-by today. It must be this Armani suit I’m wearing that was a gift to me from Jerry Seinfeld. And no doubt that spiffy and colourful looking bow tie you’re wearing is drawing a lot of attention as well.”

They walked by 10 Downing Street where British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was standing at a podium in front of the door to the residence shooting his mouth off about something or other.

Extremely Curious George stood next to Johnson briefly and opened his mouth in a big wide yawn as the Prime Minister was talking.

The photo that was taken of the moment went viral on social media.

    I thought Mr. George would have swallowed the PM. Not that it would have helped. Too many monsters waiting to take his place.

    Dance is always a nice option 😀
    The picture would have been interesting which went viral. Stegosaurus yawning near the person giving speech. About to be eaten?

    A stegosaurus was a vegetarian so he wouldn’t have eaten Boris Johnson.

    It was my favourite children’s book when I was in Grades 3 and 4 called The Shy Stegosaurus of Cricket Creek that inspired my character of the stegosaurus.

    His name was George in that book.

    And George the shy stegosaurus was a rather nice fellow.

    Before I started kindergarten, my favourite children’s book was Curious George about a mischievous monkey who was always getting into trouble.

    So I combined those two books’ characters and came up with Extremely Curious George for my stegosaurus. 😀
