"What's that Christmas card doing on that table over there?"
"Still? Oh it's that card T.Aldous brought us."
"It's a nice picture on the card."
"Oh aye, it's a nice card but what's it doing on there still?"
"The one on that table."
"Isn't that the card T.Aldous got us for Christmas?"
"That's the one. It's a nice card."
"Oh, it's a nice card right enough. He told me so every lunch time."
"He told everyone. Every time I came in here he was telling somebody that he'd bought that card and wasn't it a nice picture."
"It is a nice picture, though."
"I wonder why it's still there."
"It's a Christmas card. What's it still doing on there?"
"That's what we were wondering."
"Why hasn't it been thrown away with all the other cards?"
"Perhaps it's a shrine to his retirement."
