if i had a fish ant

I took the day off today. I've been celebrating. Yesterday was Melbourne Cup Day - the day the nation apparently stops for a horse race. Giddy up.

I went to a BBQ at my cousin's place and out of everyone there I was the only one to back the winner. I got 2nd place too. So now I'm $200 richer and I wish I'd put $75 on horse #6, Efficient, instead of only $7.50. I'd probably be in Texas now if I had

Texas? Be careful what you wish for. Congrats on being a winner though needn't have bet on a horse to know that. Still, cash is nice, no?

Hi Nash,
I’d rather have the nation stop for a horse race than create a holiday for the slaying and devouring of turkeys like we’re doing on the 22nd. The entire ordeal is macabre…

Congratulations for taking second place on the race and winning $200. Why Texas? Are you expecting an invite to el Presidente’s ranch in Crawford? It’s hot and dusty in The Lone Star State, pardner…giddy up! Whoa! And a High Ho Silver…

Oh God, dare I tell you you cannot make it on a horse from Australia to Texas?
See, even if they call it a continent, you still live on a big island...
Oh forget it, if the Croydon School System did not do their job, far be in for me to.

What did you take the day off from? Was it not a public holiday for Melbournians.

Let's just say I have an interest in helping someone abscond from Texas...

Yes WS, cash is nice. It's just a pity it disappeared so darn quickly

Howdy Missy Litzi, I got FIRST and second place. Yee-harrrr!

Marc, whaddya mean I can't make it from here to there on a pony. Jeez. Are you sure???

Hi Firehorse, I took the day after Cup Day off. By the way, I'm looking for a horse who can get me to Texas. Can you help?
