What about a parrot party in Polynesia?

It's cold here; let's have a parrot party somewhere warm. Polyphony says she'll get in touch with everyone with the invitations, although Polygon had already left by the time hers arrived. Polygamy and Polyandry want to bring six partners each. Is that too many, or can we cope?

If Monopoly comes alone, that is only eleven extra men, so it won't be too bad.

Can I bring my Dartmoor pony please? He doesn't eat much.

I have sent Polly to put the kettle on so that when we arrive we'll all have tea.

I presume our resident polymath Bags will be there?

And Polly Morphic will keep us ship-shape.

Polyester is worried that she might get all hot and sweaty!

Galen Tue 14-Jan-14 16:19:38

Will we be visiting a metropolis?

Ummm Henetha - only if the pony's name is Polly (or Parrot)

Tri Poli could be getting a bit hot and sweaty too. They could both get an attack of polydipsia, leading later to lots of polyuria.

Polysyllabic is bound to confuse us with her technical terms - and she will keep referring to her best friend Polytetrafluoroethylene instead of being like the rest of us and just using her nickname Teflon.

Anne58 Tue 14-Jan-14 16:34:41

Is Pollyfilla in charge of catering?

Lona Tue 14-Jan-14 16:39:29

Polymorphic will be there in disguise.

Elegran Tue 14-Jan-14 16:41:45

Will we get Roly Poly pud?

Can I come with my polymyalgia?

LizG Tue 14-Jan-14 17:09:04

Sadly Poly Cystic is not feeling too good, keeps getting hot flushes, so she will give it a miss.

AlieOxon Tue 14-Jan-14 17:15:28

Can I play with Monopoly?

Polly - put the kettle on!

This is getting very poly-technical for me

Wheniwasyourage Tue 14-Jan-14 17:22:03

Actually Polymath said she would work out the quantities of food and wine we would need. Polypharmacy is bringing the Alka-Selzer in case Polydipsia overdoes it - again... angry

annodomini Tue 14-Jan-14 17:26:37

Not too many hoi polloi please. We should keep this exclusive.

LizG Tue 14-Jan-14 17:48:51

Pollyana has chose a very pretty frock to wear and will have a bow in her golden locks.

LizG Tue 14-Jan-14 17:49:16

Oops chosen!

newist Tue 14-Jan-14 17:54:53

We can look at the Polyanthus while somone plays the Polychord.

Soutra Tue 14-Jan-14 18:01:11

They say it's very pretty Polynesia.

Polychrome has a very colourful personality, Polytechnic is clever and Polyglot is a great conversationalist so they would be good company. Polysaccharide is just too sweet for words and Polyvalent is simply two-faced, so I wouldn't invite either of them.

Elegran Tue 14-Jan-14 18:24:58

I do hope that Polyp doesn't get caught up in Polymer's chain again. That could get nasty!
