A quick lesson in navigation


'Which is why,' Captain Bill explained, 'the correct thing to do is always to steer 'Not North,' and he pointed to 'Not North' on his knitted compass so that Camille's little students could pick it out.

'No, it isn't!' said Bertha.

'Ignore her,' Captain Bill suggested. '...................It is!'

'No, it isn't!' said Bertha.

'It is!' Captain Bill replied.

'It isn't!'

'..........................................................Is!'

'Isn't!

'Is!'

'ISN'T!'

'As a highly experienced and respected captain,' Captain Bill began.

'HA!' said Bertha.

'Really,' Camille interrupted, 'this is most educational. Not only are ma little students getting a lesson in navigation, they are also getting a thorough grounding in mindless petty squabbling. A vital skill which will be a reoccurring aspect of their adult lives if I am any judge.'

'Remembering that it is, of course, the person who is wearing the captain's hat who is the one who knows best,' Captain Bill replied.

'Because previous displays of outstanding leadership and 'eroism have won the loyalty and admiration of 'is crew?' Camille suggested.

'Modesty forbids,' said Captain Bill.

'And honesty prevents,' Bertha added.

'Captain's hat!' said Captain Bill.

And Bertha knocked Captain Bill's hat off.
