Distancing myself .... at a Distance

epitaph obituary announcement funnyAlthough I don’t know it, at the dawn of my life
My time’s all my own, until I find a wife
The times they are changing, as am I, day by day
I’m nearly grown up now, gotta be on my way
For health, wealth and laughter, and some of the spanking
It’s my hard-working parents I should be thanking
For the food in my gut and the gleam in my eye
So kiss my holy ring, and kiss my butt goodbye
Well today it rained quite a lot but we didn't mind. It's also the day of the inter-school disco. Normally, I don't like discos because it's hot and bangy and I don't like the hot dogs anyway and you're not allowed outside because there's not enough teachers to supervise you so you have to stay inside where it's hot and bangy. But did this one go any better? We all cheered at England winning. I'll be home tomorrow.

Of course this was all splendid for us as we had Big Jim and Fridge Fraser on our side who are tall and strong and I was demo-model for the rope swing and nobody got left behind and I suspect this is the one thing that everyone will remember the most. Plus we were against Nightingale School who were all Year 4s.
It is rumoured that in the super-gucky water-pit under the swinging rope, a £50 note is hidden. I can categorically tell you that this is total buttocks. If there was, it would have dissolved in the dreaded scumble-juice contained therein: one of our number fell in for 2 seconds only and came out bright (and strangely) brown.

We got, like, half a point and another team got 9/10 because they all said they loved Mr Scarborough in their song, load of old cheats.
