Fairy Tale Friday

All the girls, except Tammy, are still hyped with Olympic fever and have decided the marathon is for them (Apparently they all have huge levels of energy and staying power!). 
Tammy has dropped out to go and watch Wimbledon from Murray's Mount.  She turned up in her whites, with a tennis racket and a bag full to the brim of new tennis balls.  She played every stroke Andy Murray did, she was bouncing around Murray's Mount swishing her racket everywhere and screaming " c'mon Andy".  It was a full 15 minutes before the police ushered her away.  Fifteen minutes where she managed to knock out two men with wild swings, and trod on an old ladies plate of strawberries and cream.  Tammy was very excited when sitting in her cell at the police station, the senior officer showed her a photo album that contained all her mug shots she got every time she was arrested.  Oh the memories.
Meanwhile, the girls visiting the local pond, scene of some of their recent adventures.  Running round the pond equals one mile, so the target set was a very optimistic 26 and a half laps.  Halfway around the park, Gayle started to lag behind.  A devious idea came to her, and she waded directly through the middle of the pond, hid behind a tree and waited for the girls to pass, she then stepped out from behind the tree, pretending she had been keeping up.
Another lap, and another incident.  Tired and exhausted, XXXX just kept running straight ahead, came off the path and headed out over the fields.  It was only when she ran into a hedge at the far end of the field did she realise what she's done.
Now the girls had a plan.  Every half a mile, some friends had set up areas where the girls could pick up a drink on the way round, to help cool them off.  Unfortunately, instead of using water, the girls thought it would be a good idea to have vodka and coke.  After lap 3, most of the girls at one point had staggered and fallen into the pond.  Gayle was the worst offender with 3 visits to the pond in 3 laps.  However, hers was deliberate as she waded across the pond to hide and wait on the girls going past.
5th lap was a miracle.  An ambulance on standby picked up half the girls who lay strewn around the park, all in various unfortunate positions.  By the 6th lap, the girls felt thirsty.  They gave up on the running, and went to the pub instead for another type of marathon. 

After the girls dried out they managed to make some gorgeous cards.
