I'm Having Difficulty Holding My Tongue

I have a secret. I’m busier than a busy man’s business, on the busiest day of his busy life, and one of the things I’m working on is really exciting and will change everything about the way I train and coach. It’s doing my head in keeping it schtum because as anyone who has met me will tell you, I like to talk. I like to talk a lot. So really what I’m telling you is that I have a big secret but all you have to do is ask me twice and I’ll tell you because I’m really excited about what will happen in the next few months.

If you have a minute or two:

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love David Attenborough. I saw him on TV the other night and he’s 82 which got me to thinking that although he’s active for his age, there won’t be too many more of his programmes made. What then? “When Sharks ATTACK!” will probably be the height of nature programming. H’e also responsible for explaining the natural world and the dichotomy of religious belief in a simple and non-condescending way, while still speaking his mind.

“Telling the magazine that he was asked why he did not give “credit” to God, Attenborough added: “They always mean beautiful things like hummingbirds. I always reply by saying that I think of a little child in east Africa with a worm burrowing through his eyeball. The worm cannot live in any other way, except by burrowing through eyeballs. I find that hard to reconcile with the notion of a divine and benevolent creator.”

  4. I’ve done pretty well at this holding my tongue business so far.Many a slip between cup and lip as they say so I’ll keep relatively schtum until I’m sure it’s going ahead. Mind you, those people are probably just making excuses for the fact that they spill their drinks on themselves.
