When the Tree of Temptation (now remodelled as a wonky chest
of drawers) gave Shabby a secret task yesterday, it warned
her that if she ever said anything about it to her peers,
she would incur its wrath.
Quite how an inanimate object is able to carry-out such threats
is beyond us, but Big Brother hasn't got any arms, legs, head
or even a body, let alone natty handles and wooden legs, and
the entity manages just fine in the punishing-them department!
And with a little help from Big Bro, the Tree dished-out
its promised punishment this afternoon, after Shabby couldn't
help herself last night and blabbed
about the task to Caoimhe. It was quite a clever punishment
too, because it was her unrequited love-interest that got
it in the neck for Shabby's rule-breaking behaviour, not her.
Indeed, Caoimhe was duly sent to a special punishment room,
where she had just a wooden chair for comfort and was made
to listen to Shabby and Ben's voices over-and-over again!
Fed-up with hearing their relentless reconciliation chatter,
the Irish beauty eventually curled-up in a ball on the floor.
After nearly three hours of punishment-slash-torture, Big
Brother finally let her out of the room (which had Ben and
Shabby's faces plastered all over the walls), and upon returning
to the group Caoimhe gasped: "I need a cigarette!"
