A tale I heard

Rapper Dizzee Rascal when asked if he has any surprising hobbies:

"I quite like Thai boxing. But then I’m not surprised because I did taekwondo and karate and judo and all of that when I was a kid, and then just stopped when I got a bit older. Then I went back to it and was like, 'Yeah I like boxing and all of that other shit'. Other than that, what do I like?… I don’t know man… fishing. I quite like fishing."

A tale I saw

Peter and Will Have a New Show They Are Very Proud Of by Jess Green

A tale I wrote

I'm incredibly tired.
When I'm incredibly tired,
I say I'm quite tired

and I wait to see
who will tell me they're really tired
and why they're really tired

and how I could never
imagine being that tired
because they're really tired

and I watch them yawn
and tell them
I'm quite tired.

A tail I like
