Weresheep...real or not real?
'And they say it's got claws the size of cups!'
'Lads, lads,' said Flossie,'lads, there's no such thing as a weresheep.'
'Lads are very spooked now Flossie,' suggested Lefty.
'That's what happens when you don't stick together!' called out a sheep from the back.
'But lads,' continued Flossie,'actually if you could just give me a bit more room, thank you. Lads, they just imagined it, they must have!'
'Not sure the lads feel reassured,' added Lefty.
'Aye!' called out another sheep,'and if there's no such thing...how comes Lefty's suddenly got that scar on his face?'
Flossie looked dumbfounded.
'Suddenly got that scar on his face?!?' he exclaimed,'but he's had it for years now! You know he has! As I recall it got it while we were trying to board that ship full of scythes....we really should have done more research before attempting that.'
'No, no,' replied Lefty,' that was Hooky. Mine was from that accident with the scissors. That's why you introduced that rule about not running with them.'
'Oh, you're right!' agreed Flossie,'I'd forgotten about that, I stand corrected. Anyway, the point is it wasn't from any encounter with a weresheep. Now if you don't mind I'm going to have to bring this discussion to an end because my attention has just been drawn to something of great importance.'
'What's that?' asked Lefty.
'Some just nicked our balloon!' replied Flossie.
