Having fun at work
'But you gave the sign,' said Bertha.
'We hadn't agreed on a sign!' gasped Captain Bill.
'Cyril and I had,' replied Bertha.
'You could have told me!' said Captain Bill.
Bertha thought about this.
'That would have taken a lot of the fun out of it,' she replied.
Cyril nodded in agreement.
'And that was the reason for sending me out there was it?' asked Captain Bill, 'so you two could have fun!'
'Well it was mostly so we could get the Mootilus back,' replied Bertha, 'but it was nice to have a bit of fun at the same time.'
'Speaking for myself,' said Cyril, 'I'd say it was more about the fun.'
'Really?' said Bertha.
'Mmm,' replied Cyril, 'I'd say, roughly speaking, 85-90% fun, 10% general helping.'
'It's interesting isn't it,' said Bertha, 'how people can work side by side on the same project and yet have totally different motives.'
'I could have drowned!' mooed Captain Bill.
