“Spock, take a look at this mate!” said Stu with a tingle of excitement in his voice.
Spock sauntered over and looked at the computer screen as Stu read aloud. “Fourteen days return flight to Bangkok, special offer, only £349.”
“That looks okay matey. Dave told us to fly to Bangkok and it would be easy to get to Pattacake from there,” said Spock looking at the advert.
“Pattaya,” said Stu correcting his friend. “Shall I book it while it’s on offer?” he asked and took out his credit card. “That means we fly next week, but we will be back in time for Christmas. That doesn’t leave us much time to prepare.”
“It would be a shame not to. Besides, it will be warm there, so we won’t need much,” said Spock with a smile a mile wide. “I can give my cheetah spotted speedos an airing while getting a suntan.”
Stu cringed at the thought of his large milk bottle white friend in his skimpy skidders, and then said. “Yeah, you’re right, I’ll book it.”
While entering his credit card details Stu groaned. “Huh, I knew there would be a catch,” he said and sat back.
“What?” asked Spock, furrowing his brow.
Stu looked at Spock and frowned. “It is another £69 each for travel insurance,” he said sounding disappointed
Spock shrugged. “Bah, we won’t need it. What can happen to us in Thailand in two weeks?”
