Mr B, one of the teachers at school asked if we would like to be “in” on the staff World Cup Sweepstake, we have to admit that we did debate the £2 entry fee for about five/ten minutes, before we sensed that Mr B was
losing the will to live becoming a little impatient with our prolonged deliberations, so we quickly tossed a coin and as it came up heads we said yes we would …… paying in pennies, two and five pence coins, and a couple of washers from Nigel!!!! We think that we may have descerned a slight terseness in Mr B’s voice as he slowly picked up our aforementioned assorted coins when he said “Thank you boys!!!!!!!!!!”
But now we are in possession of a slip of paper that says Portugal ….. and having checked on various betting sites we feel that at 25 -1 we have invested our £2 well and have a reasonable chance of going far …… so from Castle Greysquirrel it’s a case of a very robust “Come on Ingerrrrrrrland” AND and equally and forceful “Come on you Portuuuuuuuuuuuugal”!!!
