How to hold a meeting



'I wasn't!' said Captain Bill.


'WAS!' replied Bertha.


'Perhaps if we could move on?' suggested Norma.


'He was!' continued Bertha.


'Wasn't!' replied Captain Bill.


Please!' pleaded Norma.


Bertha and Captain Bill glowered at each other.


'Queen Phoebe's crown?' said Norma. 'We have promised to get it back.'


'OK!' agreed Bertha.


'Fine!' said Captain Bill.


'Soooooooooo,' smiled Norma, 'the question facing us is how do we track down a flock of utterly ruthless pirate sheep? Any thoughts?'


Horace waved his pencil to attract Norma's attention.


'Yes?' asked Norma.


'Actually I've already started on an idea.'


'Wonderful!' mooed Norma. 'What is it?'


Horace held up a piece of paper.


'It's a poem!' he said.


'.....................Erm!........Well done!' replied Norma.


'I thought if I wrote a poem about pirate sheep and got it published they might see it and then ask for a signed copy and then we'd have their address!'


'....................................................................................Possibly?' said Norma.


'I'm off!' said Cyril.


'Can we go for a paddle on the beach?' asked Annie.


'Why not!' replied Cyril.


So Cyril and Annie herded off towards the beach.


'Thanks for coming!' said Norma.


'Try not to get stuck on anything!' called out Bertha.


'I WAS NOT STUCK!' shouted Captain Bill.


'Do you think pirate sheep would prefer hexameter or pentameter?' asked Horace.


'And we've only been back a week!' cried Norma.

I think pirate sheep would prefer haiku, it sounds like a pirate shriek to me.

I know I have mentioned it before...
and at the risk of sounding pushy but...
You know, leadership training might actually work.
Failing that, Team Building???
Just a thought.
