This week the words are:
frisbee, baseball, Winston, truce, Studebaker, diamond
vanish, message, Tokyo, Wanda, twist and maim.
Wanda and Winston, while they may not look it, are twins. Today they sit in the back of their fathers Studebaker, an uneasy truce among them. Papa has just had a message from a business associate in Tokyo and will need to take a long business trip. He wants his two darlings to go with him citing the educational value of such a trip. The kids are not happy. Winston has a baseball tournament at the HopeLee Diamond and Wanda a beach Frisbee tournament in neighbouring Treemont. Both are captains of their teams.
“It would seriously maim both our teams chances for us to be absent. We have an excellent chance at getting the cup this year….both of us. We can’t just vanish.”
Wanda twisted in her seat the better to stare down her father. “Can’t we just stay with Aunt Maggie for a while?”
“You don’t even like your Aunt Maggie but you would be willing to take advantage of her? Is that fair?”
"About as fair as you insisting we give up our championship games to go with you." Winston whined.
Ah such problems the wealthy have.
