I flung the ball around a few more times, but a rectangular thing kept whapping me in the face. It was attached to the ball with a stiff bit of string. This was no good and it sure was annoying! I couldn’t return the ball to Nice Guy and have it whap him everytime he flings it.
I decided that I would remove the rectangular thing. The best way I knew how to get rid of something was to chew it up. So, I started with one end and worked my way through.
