Dear Holly,

I was wondering if I would be suitable for the Paralympics, seeing as I am colourblind?

Dear Wayne,

We staged our own Olympics at playtime the other day, and ours was even better because we allowed both disableds and ableds to take part together because children aren’t prejudiced like adults. It was all going swimmingly until Aisha Patel got her wheelchair caught in a hurdle and we had to leave her on her side blocking the track, and then Matthew Potterton (who is partially disabled due to his recent circumcision) didn’t stop in time during the one hundred meters sprint and crashed into Aisha, causing some distress to her as well as his already tender privates. Matthew’s injury meant his mum withdrew her sponsorship offer of a Chupa Chup for every participant.

Hope that helps!

Holly
