That was a close escape, have to get a new hobby to relate.
Something less conspicuous, won`t take up too much time,
Something less energetic, for what I`ve got in mind.
I won`t be too persistent `cos I`m not that way inclined.
See, that`s the one for me. Look under "Collins" see if she`s free.
Sweaty fingers find 5p 4151683
"Hello Miss Collins you`ll not know me. I`m in the undies
Business, see? Please please can you tell me the size; how
Far from the knee?"

Oh dear dear, me luck is running thin.
I`ll take another name I might have a win.
What? 2 more points? I hope no one fills it in.

See, that`s the one for me. Look under "Dickens" CFG.
