Alice has put up all the Christmas decorations and is ready to wrap the presents before the childrens’ party at the hospital. However, will she be able to go?

Alice:Right, all the decorations are up in the ward. Time to wrap the presents and sort out the crackers.
Matron:You’re doing such a splendid job, Alice.
Alice:Thank you. I’ve always loved organising Christmas parties and I want this to be a really fun time for the kids, to take their minds off being in hospital.
Matron:Well, in my book, anything that’s good for a patient’s psychology is good for their biology! But, I’m afraid I have some bad news.
Alice:Oh, what’s happened?
Matron:You see there’s a staff shortage on another ward. We need you to work there for a while.
Alice:Oh, when?
Matron:Right now.
Alice:But we’re about to have the party.
Matron:I’m sorry Alice, but there’s no choice.
