Smelly Puppets

Postby Chris » 24 Jun 2013, 18:05

As I was preparing for a school workshop show I got out a bag of really old Punch figures, some antique, and all in their original costumes. Because I had forgotten to unpack them after their previous jaunt and had been stored in an airless bag I noticed they carried a rather musty smell.
During my presentation today I had a line of kids, each holding a puppet, for the teacher to take a photograph. I told the kids how old some of the puppets were, and said that they even smell old.
One young girl sniffed hers and then whispered to me : "It smells like my grandfather!"
It's good to squawk!
