Brenda the PE Lady had organised a
shuttlecock Badminton Coaching Day for yesterday and invited Darrell and Nigel along to see if it could be a potential sport of choice for them …. as she worries deeply (at times) about their combined level of fitness.
Both Darrell and Nigel admitted to being a little Badminton curious …. and so accepted Brenda the PE Lady’s kind invitation with open but I am afraid, slightly mischievous frames of mind …
….. because I think Nigel’s curiosity was bound more by the mention of the word “shuttlecock” …….…… than by actually partaking in the aforementioned sport and becoming cognisant with its rules and regulations
…. and Darrell didn’t help their tangible mood of silliness either by constantly tapping the back of Nigel’s head with a racquet he found and wondering out aloud as to how far he could launch Nigel over the net with it !
I have told them that I am totally ashamed of their asinine behaviour and as such have insisted that they go to see Brenda the PE Lady and apologise robustly for not taking the golden opportunity of improved physical fitness she had offered them seriously, adding that it would serve them both right if she gave them a black bin bag each and made them pick up all the fallen leaves off the cross country trail before the next training session!!! What are they like?
