well these things happen!
'Hopeless, absolutely hopeless!' said Bertha.
'Look for the last time,' replied Captain Bill,'it was NOT my fault!'
Norma and Bertha both looked at Captain Bill.
'Well I tried to warn you!' he continued,'I said it had an aggressive look about it, but did anybody listen!'
'It was unexpectedly strong for a fish!' said Norma.
'Hopeless!' mooed Bertha.
'We do have other spoons,' said Norma,'perhaps you could try again?'
'Hmm,' replied Captain Bill,'I think if it's all the same to you I'll pass. I wouldn't be at all surprised if it didn't have whole canteens of cutlery stuffed away somewhere! Probably been building up a collection for years!'
'Right then!' said Bertha and with that she left the other two and herded off down towards the pier. 'If you want something doing!' she called back towards them as she went.
'Well you tried!' said Norma after she'd gone.
'Difficult to live with though,' conceded Captain Bill,'if news of this gets back to Captain School I shall have to hand back my hat! I'm pretty sure that being mugged by a haddock is a sackable offence!'
