ALBI TROSS and the PILOT

The leathery creature reached across and put its two fingered hands together, it then pulled off one of its two fingered hands, inside the two fingered hand was a pink hand with five fingers.

This is a very strange creature thought Albi.

The creature the pulled off the other two fingered hand and again underneath was another pink five fingered hand.

What will it do next thought Albi.

The creature then reached up and pulled off its two big round staring eyes.

" I'm off." said Albi when this happened.

He started to stretch out his big wings.

" This is too scary for me."

" An Albatross." said the creature in a muffled voice although it did not move or seem to have a mouth.


" Did you say something." said Albi.

" And it's talking'" said the creature.

Albi started to flap his wings.

" Wait can't we talk." said the creature.

" I'm not talking to any one who can pull his hands off and his eyes out." said Albi.

" They are only mittens and goggles." said the creature.

" I've got a hat as well. " said the creature pulling the top of his shinny head off. A mop of reddish heir flopped out.

" Hay you're a sailor." said Albi

" I'm not a sailor said the man looking at the Albatross. " I'm a pilot."

" You can't fool me." said Albi. " You are in a boat bobbing up and down on the sea, so you are a sailor. Pilots fly aeroplanes up in the sky."

" Not if the wings fall off they don't." said the pilot. "When that happens aeroplanes tend to want to try and be submarines."

" Is that what happened to your aeroplane?" said Albi.
" It fell out the sky?"
Albi tried to point at the sky with his wing but as he could only point sideways the gesture was rather lost.

" Sort of." said the Pilot. " Anyway what I wanted to ask was where is the nearest land."

" How should I know." said Albi. " I'm an Albatross."


" Well. " said the Pilot.
" It says somewhere in my copy of 'The pilots crashing into the sea emergency survival hand book .'"

The pilot rummaged about in the bottom of the dingy amongst all kinds of rubbish and pulled out a book.
