Sporting story 2: Pointeso mudflats.

Pointeso Mudflats

Lolos was lost on the mudflats on the Pointeso estuary. He rested against the white pole whilst looking up at the orange wind sock fluttering in a north easterly direction.

Noise from above.

‘Bang! Bang! Bang!’

Lolos was thrown back into the mud as a Delta jet flew overhead – making contact with the military targets out to sea.

Overcome with fear, he proceeded to shout at the skies in a state of frenzied panic, the whites of his eyes gleaming in the mid – morning sun.

The jet pilots continued their aerial assaults oblivious to the lost canine quivering two hundred feet below.

Pundit 1: ‘well Brian, The moon has been missing now for the past 3 nights, and still rather peculiarly, may I be so bold as to add, nothing appears to have changed. No tidal waves, severe changes in the weather, psychological outbreaks…nothing’.

Pundit 2: ‘Well, that’s all very good my man, but we’ve had a big game tonight – do you think the Delta manager was right in his refusal to take off his tired players at the end of the first half?’

Pundit 2: ‘Aye, he’s got to start looking at that really – I mean…’
