When is a sport not a sport?
'I really,' puffed Captain Bill,'I really struggle to see the point of some of these events!'
'Events?' questioned Cyril.
'Suitcase carrying,' replied Captain Bill,'I mean who ever thought of that as a sport?'
Cyril stopped running.
Captain Bill stopped running.
'It's like this,' said Cyril,'it's not an event.'
'It isn't?' said Captain Bill.
'No!' said Cyril.
'Then what is...,' said Captain Bill.
'...They're leaving!' said Cyril.
'Leaving!' said Captain Bill.
'Leaving,' said Cyril.'They've realised it's all gone a bit pear shaped, they're not going to win....so they're leaving.'
'Right,' said Captain Bill.
'And we're going with them,'added Cyril.
'WHA....' said Captain Bill.
But he didn't get to finish what he was saying because Cyril picked him up and started to run with him.
'Wherever they're going, that's where Camille will be!'
'NO!' mooed Captain Bill,'PUT ME DOWN! CYRIL! CYRIL THIS IS YOUR CAPTAIN SPEAKING, PUT ME DOWN! THAT'S AN ORDER....CYRIL!!!!!'
'Too late!' shouted Cyril,'it's hero time!'
