Beehive Chapter-7

Jerome,Harris and George are three friends. The author,Jerome, is describing his packing skills and feels that he knows more about it rather than anyone else.He suggests his other friends to leave the packing, that they are doing for their trip,entirely to him.George and Harris happily agree to it and make themselves comfortable in the room.But Jerome did not intend this. He actually wanted to boss them and instruct them to pack the baggage according to him.But as he himself had offered to help,he started the work and finally finished it in some time.
Suddenly Harris said that he had forgotten the boots.Jerome felt irritated on that.He opened his bag and put the boots in it. Then,when he was just to zip it again,he just thought if he had packed his toothbrush or not.The idea that he has left his toothbrush, haunts him on every journey. To find his brush, he unpacks and packs it again.They all created chaos over the things and finally Harris and George decided to do the rest of the packing.
While they were packing,Jerome watched them and thought that Harris was the worst packer in the world.They all were very excited.
While packing,Harris and George, first broke a cup.Then Harris packed the strawberry jam on top of the tomato and squashed it.Then George put a mess with the butter and the whole place was so sticky.
Above all of this,Montmorency,the dog, was in it all.It seemed to be his ambition of life to get into the way of others.He loved to make people mad and create nuisance all over.He came and sat on the thing when they were just about to be packed.
Finally,after so much chaos,irritation and laughter too,they managed to pack their bags in a hope that they had not forgotten anything and they will find their things in best of the condition when they open it and went to sleep.
