Editor: Sounds like Uncle Albert, what do you do in your spare time?
Scott:  I play junior football for a local team Trevenson FC, cricket for Barriper CC and I also try to get out for a round of golf when I can although not as often as I used to now the baby has arrived.

Editor: Sorry I’m confused; didn’t you say your nick name was “The Sloth” as you seem to be too active for a sloth?
Scott: What was that? Sorry I dozed off

Editor:  Never mind, what would you rather do? Watch a movie or read a book?
Scott: Watch a movie it’s less work as I haven’t got to turn any pages.
