'Hello Sweetheart.'
'Oh, hi Dad.'
'Here's your birthday present.'
'What? Not another one.'
'Well we'd already given you tickets to see Les Mis' but it seems the show has been cancelled due to Coronavirus.'
'That's not your fault, though.'
'I know. Then we booked you a lovely overnight stay in a wonderful hotel, but it seems they have advised their guests to not turn up because of Coronavirus.'
'Again that's not your fault.'
'I know, so here's something that you probably might not have been able to get.'
'I feel so humbled. Let me open it.'
Rustle, rustle.
'Toilet rolls?'
