Askasleikir, Friday 17th December

Today, Bowl-Licker comes to town, and you might find him in the bedroom rather than the kitchen. He hides under beds waiting for someone to put down their 'askur' (a type of bowl with a lid, used instead of plates), which he then steals. Now, given that in Olden Days one might expect to find...shall we say...a "choice" of bowls under a bed, then I should imagine that Bowl-Licker's particular weakness comes with a certain degree of personal risk !
