Long-tailed Tit

It’s not every day you meet someone with the same name as a mythical figure from the legend of King Arthur. But here you are, fake burger cheese yellow t-shirt and baggy blue tracksuit bottoms, holding a softball bat. Wikipedia says your namesake is best known as a magic man. It’s not until after you strike the ball that I’m told you are blind. In the pub, you tell me you enjoy working for the charity between bites of pork scratchings and taking the piss out of my pitching arm.
