Words and Sports
[At Pudgyville?s beach...]
"One thing came to me, Brittany. Why do you use lots of big words if you know very few around you can understand you?" asked Patricia.
"My parents used them all the time when they were around famous ponies. It wasn?t like they meant to use them. I guess I just sort of picked up on them and didn?t realize until later that it?d become a problem," explained Brittany.
"Well you?re getting better at it now," remarked Patricia.
"So what got you into making up sports?" asked Brittany.
"My cousin Patch always went on adventures because it was the most fun she thought she could ever have. I wanted to go with her but my parents stopped me but never seemed to catch Patch before she left, probably because she was always up before my parents were. Once I came here, I thought about how I could invent my own fun and I thought of all the sports I?ve seen on TV and realized that I could either combine them or make something up completely from scratch and, well here I am," stated Patricia.
"Now it all makes sense," concluded Brittany.
"Hey, what if we could somehow combine my love for making up sports and your love for big words?" suggested Patricia.
"How would that work?" questioned Brittany.
"We?d just apply the big words to the new sport. Like it could be about Kite Bowling where the big words are on the pins or something," elaborated Patricia.
"Oh I see. Maybe not that sport though," advised Brittany.
"I?ll work on that one. It was really just an example to show what I meant," added Patricia.
"Maybe a sport where you jump to get the words like an obstacle course of sorts?" suggested Brittany.
"Now there?s an idea. We?d have to mix it up though so it?s more original," protested Patricia.
"Like how?" asked Brittany.
"Well maybe you?re going though some obstacles and jumping over others?" offered Patricia.
"That?s still pretty much an obstacle course. Are we thinking too much about this?" wondered Brittany.
"Maybe it?s original enough with just getting the words?" said Patricia.
"I don?t think so. After all, there are obstacle courses where ponies have to get flags. Maybe we need to find those TV shows that do it and maybe use some stuff from there?" suggested Patricia.
"Good idea. Of course, I don?t know what any of those shows would be or even if they exist," protested Brittany.
"Let?s just try to host some kind of event like that contest that happened here some time ago. We?ll give the ponies tight clothes and some amount of time to put them on. We?ll be as fair as possible by having bigger ponies get bigger clothes so it?s a closer race," continued Patricia.
"I like that idea more than anything we?ve come up with so far. It?s easy and at least partially original. Ms. Sheila can judge and the boys can commentate," agreed Brittany.
"They?ll love that for sure but we?ll need to limit participants so we can have an audience," protested Patricia.
"Plus a day and time to do it," stated Brittany.
"Let?s go see Ms. Sheila and Eduardo about it," suggested Patricia.
"Alright, let?s do it," declared Brittany before she and Patricia race off. [At Eduardo?s house...]
"A contest in this town? I certainly approve of the idea. When would it be?" replied Eduardo.
"We aren?t sure yet but maybe in two weeks?" suggested Patricia.
"Sounds good and if by chance you extend the gap between now and then, please let me know," added Eduardo.
"Will do, thanks," assured Patricia. [At Ms. Sheila?s house...]
"That?s a wonderful idea. Sounds like you two have taken up my idea then. I?m sure none of the boys will mind. How about it, Kyle? replied Ms. Sheila.
"Definitely," answered Kyle.
"We?ll call you if the details change," noted Brittany.
"Alright and I look forward to it. Bye, now," stated Ms. Sheila.
"So far so good. We just need Darren, David and Bobs? approval, or at least 3 of them to be able to come," smiled Brittany.
"This will be the best competition Pudgyville has ever seen," thought Patricia.
