Sprog #4: I want a polar bear.
Me: What?
Sprog #4: I want a polar bear.
Me: What? I don’t understand.
Sprog #4: I want polar bear in your pocket.
Me: I haven’t got a polar bear in my pocket.
Sprog #4: (pointing to pocket) Look in there.
Me: OK (looks in pocket and retrieve packet of mints with holes in) Ah, are these the Polo bears?

Things to do whilst running

Sunday, May 30th, 2004

Grahame’s Things to do Whilst Running is too near to the truth for some of us.

To his list I would add:

  • adjusting one’s microfibre shorts to avoiding much chafing of the nads.
  • timing your run to coincide with the evening rush hour so as to experience the full range of asthma symptoms – asthma sufferers, you have my sympathy and best wishes.
  • curse yourself for not remembering that nice bottle of water you got out of the fridge but neglected to pick up before leaving.
