Fairy Tale Friday

The football is still ongoing, but with the attention spans of goldfish, the girls have quickly forgotten about it . The London 2012 Olympic Games is their new passion.
The girls have been in practice for the tournament on the off chance some of the athletes have to withdraw due to illness. They all insist they are ready for the challenge.
The girls decided that their sport would be synchronised swimming. Practice began at the village pond on Monday (just a few days after their caravan was removed from the pond - see last weeks tale) , and after 4 days of practice Gayle's now got over her fear of water and can stick her face below the surface for 5 seconds before resurfacing, although she usually spends the next 5 minutes coughing and spluttering. It's just a matter of time before she's performing underwater like a ballerina.
Practice hasn't been going well. The key problem with the pond is that it's only 4 feet deep. Every time the girls try a forward roll in the water, someone cracks their head on the concrete floor, and that holds up the practice until the injured party gets some TCP and a plaster for their wounds.
Last night they went to the local town to visit the swimming baths. The idea was good, but there's no where for the teenagers to go at nights, so the swimming pool was chock full of kids from 12 to 16 years old chatting in the pool and not swimming. However after growling at the teenagers, the girls managed to get a small empty space, and practice began.
Immediately Tammy pretended to drown so she could be rescued by a macho life guard It's one of her fantasies), s o the girls continued with one member short. Legs were flying everywhere, Gayle accidentally stood on Maritha's hair without realising it.   Maritha couldn't get back to the surface and started to drown while Gayle watched Tammy chasing the life guard around the poolside. Only a flying kick from Sonia managed to strike Gayle and knock her over, allowing Maritha to surface spluttering. As Gayle fell over, she went into a panic as she hates water, and the life guard had to make a 2nd rescue (getting him away from Tammy in the process). It took him 30 seconds to rescue Tammy, but a full 8 minutes to rescue Gayle as he kept trying to take her to the opposite side of the pool from Tammy. Every time he got close to the other side, Tammy appeared as if by magic. Poor Gayle was being dragged around the pool kicking and screaming.
The girls had a bonding session in the pub after the training session. Apparently next week will be Javelin practice. Each had a shot at the dart board in the pub, but no one managed to hit the target. It's not likely they'll be heading to the Olympics any time soon. 

Thankfully the girls didn't want to return to the pool after that and they managed to make some cards!!!
