Chase List

My personal chase list includes:
My ex-partner: who hates me and hit me with a shoe.
Cats: which are selfish creatures who apparently don't like having their sleep interrupted.
An ostrich: who could run fast but was outwitted when I sheltered behind a tree.
A herd of cows: who always think you're going to feed them.
A swarm of flies: after I stepped in a cow pat (see above).
Ducks, geese, swans and assorted wildfowl: who always seem protective/anxious.
A cyclist with road rage: because I dared to step off a pavement too soon and caused him to fall off his bike.
Wasps and hornets: never sure what the difference is but they always seem angry.
A man calling himself Drew: who insisted that I take the sample of cherryflavoured yogurt he was distributing.
The Taxman: for money I did not have.
Some bailiffs: as I ran from the back door.
Various women: in my vainglorious dreams.
But, somehow, I have never been chased by good fortune.
