It was summer and Mr. and Mrs. Barriball bundled their three children up and loaded them into the car. They were off to the beach for the day!
The Surf Lifesaving Club had put up flags on the beach. People were to swim between the flags if they wanted to be rescued if they got into trouble.
Mr Barriball thought that was silly. “There’s a lot more space to enjoy oneself in the water without a crowd of fat people splashing around.”
At the end of the day Mr and Mrs Barriball bundled their three children up and loaded them into the car. They were off home! “See,” said Mr. Barriball,” I told you that swimming between the flags was a silly idea.” He gesticulated grandly as he spoke.
“Slow down a bit on the corners, dear,” said Mrs. Balliball.
“The speed indications they give on corners are always far too slow,” said Mr. Balliball. “You can almost always double the speed indicated.”
Mr. and Mrs. Balliball and their three children arrived home in no time.
