An Ode To Andrew Strauss' Left Arm

Oh Andrew,
How your arm does move
So fast,
How your arm does find
The ball
It makes NWG
Grateful for all
That you do.

Oh Andrew,
How you catch
So well,
How you seem to
Be in the right place
At the right time,
NWG is thankful.

I got in touch with Andrew Strauss' right arm to ask it what it felt about this ode and it was none too pleased NWG.

It tells me it was gonna leave a comment on your blog but it needed the help of the left arms hand so couldn't. It did tell me to give you a middle fingered signal though....it did manage that much.

You've got a lot of making up to do girl. Causing division betweem Strauss' arms could be disastrous. Imagine there's a two handed catch and righty decides "bollocks, I aint getting involved, nobody even cares about me". Or imagine him playing a cover drive and righty pulls out again? What if righty doesn't even decide to get out of bed?

Credit where credit is due NWG. Lefty would be nothing without righty. You need to react quick.

His right arm offers very little interest to NWG. It's the left arm that does all the good stuff.

You're just a right armist. Pure discrimination

In Andrew Strauss' case. Yes, NWG is. She accepts that.

Well you just wait until I tell Strauss' left arm about your every-joint-muscle-tendon curse. We'll see how much it likes you then.

Breaking news: Just had an email from Andrew Strauss' right leg and it says it's fan of NWG. Hurrah. It also said that it wasn't effected by curses. Phew.

Right leg?

Whats he got to do with it? It's right arm you need to worry about. You've been had NWG...caught off guard

The Nightwatchgirl said...

the right arm and the right leg are connected in their rightedness. Don't you know anything anonymous? Clearly you're Stephen Hawking...

Well Einstein, the left arm and the right arm are also connected in their arm-ness. This was my original point.

(We are talking about arms and legs but NWG was not making fun of the fact Stephen Hawking is paraplegic, but of me and my "intelligence". She could have said Einstein just as easily but her Britishness did not allow her. She is a good girl really...sometimes)

See, I saved you there. I deserve a reward.

Congratulations anonymous. NWG would like to reward you with a pat on the back.

Congratulations.
