2-Foot games


Today was a really nice day. It was not too hot in the garden as most of the time it stayed cloudy. Our 2-foot though once again confused me greatly. He came out into the garden with us, and he brought one of those boxes that lights up with moving pictures on it. He sat and watched it all day, it was showing something called "cricket". Now this cricket took all day, and it was WEIRD. there were lots of 2-foots all stood around on a big lawn. There were two lots of sticks pushed into the lawn, and a 2-foot stood in front of each set of sticks with a stick in his hand (confused? believe me, I've hardly begun!). Every so often, one of the 2-foots that was standing around on the grass threw a ball at one of the 2-foots stood in front of the sticks. Often, the 2-foot in front of the sticks totally ignored the ball, other times, he stuck his leg out in front of it, and then other times, he hit it with his stick. All the other 2-foots on the grass seemed to run around and play a bit, and some of them tried to catch the ball.

So what I don't understand is, if the 2-foot with the stick did not want the ball, why did they keep throwing it to him? there were obviously lots of other 2-foots who DID want it as they kept chasing it.

If anybun could explain to me what in heavens name was going on, I'd be fascenated to hear it. It kept my 2-foot engrossed for hours!
