you look whole with your bucket
'No, no, no!' said Cyril,'and if you don't mind me saying, you've made this mistake before.'
'Really?' replied Captain Bill...who was clearly struggling.
'Oh yes!' said Cyril,'and besides, it's not just the size of the bucket that counts but also the number of trips that you make.'
Captain Bill stopped and put down his buckets.
'I've been here since 10am yesterday,' he said,'I've only had 4 hours sleep. You turned up 5 MINUTES AGO!'
'There's no need to shout,' replied Cyril,'I had a dental appointment, very important things teeth, couldn't be missed.'
'But we don't have a dentist!' mooed Captain Bill.
'Well then it's no wonder I took so long,' replied Cyril,'having to go 'off island'. You should be thankful I got back a quickly as I did.'
And with that he put down his buckets and started to walk away.
'Where do you think you're going?' called out Captain Bill.
'Chiropodist!' replied Cyril,'booked it months ago, too late to cancel, ever so sorry, back soon.'
And with that he disappeared over the crest of a hill.
