At the skiing competition


Captain Bill was late.

'Have I missed much?' he asked.

'Geraldine's set a blistering pace,' replied Norma.

'Yes,' said Captain Bill, 'I can't help but feel that she has a bit of an advantage at these sort of things.'

'She went down on one ski,' replied Norma.

Hmm,' said Captain Bill, 'still?'

'And she's offered to go backwards on the 2nd run.'

'Makes you feel a bit...inadequate.'

'Nonsense!'

'And I see there's no time for Cyril.'

'Disqualified!' replied Norma.

'The usual?' asked Captain Bill.

Norma nodded her head.

'He was trying to eat the course.'
