Year 3, week 28: Octopussy

TheVamp was in chambers today looking tanned after yet another ski holiday. “How many times has she been away this year,” asked OldSmoothie at chambers tea.
“Compared to the number of ‘golf’ ahem ‘papers’ days you take, I hardly think you can complain,” smiled HeadofChambers. “And you’ve got to give it to her. She is pretty sporty.”
“Well she’s certainly game, if that’s what you mean.”
“No, seriously, apparently she stroked the Cambridge University Blues rowing team two years in a row.”
“You know, I really don’t want to know who she stroked at university or how many times,” replied OldSmoothie.
At which point TheBusker whispered with a smile: “Though apparently they did nickname her boat Octopussy.”

    Did all that encouragement help them win the boat race? Now we know why they can’t win any more…

    Ha! I had my suspicions – I know who you are and which college you went to. Glad to see good old Octopussy getting a mention in the press!
