Brave! Undaunted! Resolute! I STAND ASTRIDE the local field!
Yes! LIKE A COLOSSUS.
Because today! is the day! when Colossus (and helpers) test out a mound of old camping stuff scammed from the local charity shop for a fiver!
After an hour, the helpers have legged it.
Colossus resolves to reign supreme.
After two hours, Colossus reflects how a person of great dignity will stand undefeated despite great provocation by a pile of non-matching tent poles, a deflated mattress, and fourteen yards of split nylon.
After three hours Colossus declares the bastard tent will submit to an iron will or DIE.
After four hours Colossus requisitions a hammer, a foot pump with a hole in it, a large roll of duct tape, three puncture repair kits, two children (neither of them related) and discovers the uncanny ability to swear so bad it is sure to make every tent for miles around QUAKE TO A SINGLE COMMAND.
After five hours Colossus observes how proceedings have been slyly watched by a scabby cat up a tree. The scabby cat is IMPRESSED. Colossus is PROUD.
OH YES, CAT AND WORLD. LOOK WITH ENVY AT MY TENT.
