Glas T Toe Tickle – Maisy’s first race (on my own 2 feet!) The last time I did a race with my Daddy it was in my buggy and I beat Daddy by a second, and lots and lots of people were very sad because I beat most of them too! Now I gave a man 10p to get my toes tickled or something silly like that. Daddy was late shoving my big buggy dead fast to the start line because he was watching big ones running off and shouting “WESTIES” at Brian The Snail and he was also seeing a really coooool man with no hands and fabby springs instead of feet to cross a super- slippy stream in the grown-ups race. Daddy said the man had already won the race by miles, even though he was last, even behind my Mummy who went splash though the water! Anyway another man, much, MUCH older than Daddy, and was once in something funny called Omlimpix, had a great big hooter…to start my race you sillys!! Daddy was a bit grumpy that he didn’t wait 30 “blooming” seconds to let me line up with all the other boys & girls and they all got hooted off in front! Daddy said “you’re a Gorman girl, lets catch them” and we ran off, although Daddy helped me go the right way a bit…oh, there’s a pretty flower! It was quite a nice flower, but we carried on up a hill with me trying to pull Daddy’s arm out the socket, it was fun!! It went up and round a bit and we kept seeing wee flags that I wanted to pick up for Mummy. Anyway there was big stream with water and everything so I made Daddy wait while I splashed and got wet socks and then we ran on…a birdy, look Daddy a birdy, lets chase it…keep up Daddy! Oh look there’s a boy running down the hill very fast… WOW! …look, another one, oh dear his i-Phone fell out his pocket!!!! Now 2 girls!!! Quick run, run, run…puff! Ok, let’s sit down and watch Daddy. There’s a Mummy with a girl, and that’s funny – the Mummy looks like she’s all worn out now? Oh well let’s go down now…eh? What do you mean we’ve still to go up again, BOOOO! Whaaaa, wait a minute why is that man stealing all the flags? Oh, Daddy’s lifted me up now for a wee minute, just over to the top of that grassy bit…zooooom, downhill yippee!! Daddy? Where are you, oh, you’re limping, poor Daddy, I’ll slow down for your sore knee and splash in the stream bit again. There, is that better Daddy? Goodies and juice? Where ? At the finish – wheee off again down the hill and wow! everyone is cheering and clapping at me… Daddy I’m scared, I’ll hide behind you for a while. Is no-one looking now, ok I’ll cross the line and get the goodies!!!! Yippee!!!! I got a really cool certificate for the old Omlimpix man who is really nice and it has my name on it, I’m called Martin Hyman….oh, look there’s girls name too, Maisy!!! Daddy says I’ve to do a race with Mummy next and it’s got a funny name too, OMM!
