    No title - Post early for Christmas trailer.

    M/S of man wondering why he has tied a knot in his handkerchief. M/S of him looking at it through a magnifying glass whilst his cat examines it. He then precedes to tie knots in other material and even the cat's tail trying to remember. He remembers in bed then suddenly jumps up. The film is speeded up to show him writing his cards and wrapping presents before rushing out to post early.
