James: Watching the world cup final with the kids.
James. Nigel's eating all the snack... by himself... he won't let anybody else touch them.
James mumbles: I'm hungry *looks at Niki mournfully who has fallen asleep *
James: Gilles screams every time the commentators use a term also common in f1.
James: While Elio's doing his very best to become our own personal commentator.
James: Nelson and Alain aren't even watching the game but discussing the current racing season.
James mumbles: Maybe I should actually send those three into the bed room.
James remembers that Riccardo is in the bedroom, sick with the flu.
James: Maybe that's not that great of an idea after all...
James: Andrea still thinks we're watching ice hockey and keeps asking when Michael Jordan's gonna show up. 🤦♀️
James: Ayrton won't stop ranking the players looks.
James: *huffs * Jacques and Patrick have been singing the german national anthem for ten minutes straight *pulls a face * and that totally off key.
James: René is comparing everything to the wrestling match that he watched yesterday. He's even bitching about the jerseys not being as cool as the wrestling ones.
James: Now René's bitching about why they won't just settle the score with an awesome wrestling match *rubs bridge of his nose *
James. Honestly Didier seems to be the only one somewhat keeping up with the game.
James: Bruno is trying to beat Brazil on his game boy *mumbles * he got world cup usa for christmas... even though he could be literally watching the game RIGHT NOW!
*cheering in the background *
James looking scared: Brazil just won the world cup and I think Ayrton and Nelson are transforming into something.
Nelson and Ayrton: *actually hugging and celebrating together *
James: *looks even more scared *
James shakes Niki awake, who somehow hasn't been woken up by Ayrton and Nelson loosing their shit.
Niki groggily: What? What's going on, is the match over?
James: *points at Ayrton and Nelson, still hugging and jumping around with each other *
James and Niki both turn and see Elio clinging to Nigel, utterly inconsolable and sobbing hysterically.
Niki: Did I wake in another dimension??!
Riccardo suddenly comes walking into the room looking like a zombie. He takes one look at the crying Elio, one look at the hugging Ayrton and Nelson before he just turns around again and leaves the room.
Bruno, btw, doesn't care at all that Italy lost the world cup because on his game boy he (read: Italy) beat Brazil.

James: So *laughs nervously * We kinda forgot Riccardo at home... So Niki went to get him. Which means I'm in charge. *grins *
The kids in the background: *devious smirk *
James sweating: Okay, I'm a bit out of my element here. René won't stop throwing up and I have no fucking idea what to do.
James: At least Didier is being somewhat of a good boy and helping me by keeping an eye on Andrea and Bruno.
James: Quite to the contrary to Nelson.
James: He, Gilles and Elio wont stop harrassing the other people here. *loud screams *
James rolls his eyes, yells: Boys, would you leave the girls alone!! *runs off *
More hours later:
James sweating even more: Okay, just realized... *eyes darting * I have no idea where Alain and Jacques are.
Even more hours later:
James tearing at his hair: Okay. *looks at Nigel sitting in an ambulance, with a broken arm *
James crossing his arms: Okay. *looks behind himself where fire fighters try to get Patrick out of a ride he is stuck in *
James rubs his face: Okay. *looks at police that are planning to search the park for Alain and Jacques *
James just breathes.
James: Niki's going to kill me.
