In Bennie’s rugby competition, scores are kept not at all, or at least very informally.
Thus there is some debate about the result of today’s game.
I reckon Box Hill beat Footscray by at least a couple of tries.
Bennie reckons it was a draw.
No matter – Bennie laid on a couple of beaut try-saving tackles full of grit and determination.
For which endeavours he was named man of the match, along with his mate Netty, both receiving coupons for a 7-Eleven slurpee.
Of course, redeeming our coupon was a matter of utmost urgency following the completion of the game.
So we headed straight to our nearest outlet to get the whole loathsome business over and done with.
He chooses orange spider as his flavour.
He, of course, loves the hell out of it.
I ask him if it is sweet or sour.
“A little bit of both, actually,” is the reply.
He finishes it back at home.
“That was really, really good,” is his final summation.
Gave him a brain freeze, though!
