Gavin:  This contraption looks like a “kennel.”

Wyatt:  You may be correct as I believe it is called a “cage.”

Gavin:  I do not think we are allowed to play tug with these “sticks.”

Wyatt:  It seems obvious that we should “like the luck?”

Gavin:  No, no… the talk is about “ice the puck.”

Wyatt:  The event is called “ski jumping.”

Gavin:  It seems much more like “ski falling” to me.

Wyatt:  You just need to be patient and concentrate to get down the hill.

Gavin:  My concern is that I do not want to be a patient of the ambulance at the bottom of the hill.
