All I wanted to achieve was write something playable, hopefully enjoyable for the players and removed from the standard repertoire. For a while i was not sure if enjoyable was really applicable, till the kids timidly suggested the new name - wonderfully improbable, yet imaginative. How they came to it is a mystery, probably a bee flying backwards would bump into a lot of things.
