This story reminds me of a tale All Black Marc Ellis tells about the difference between Kiwis and Aussies.
While visiting schools in Australia he would ask the kids, “who can kick the ball over the goal post?”. In Australia, all the kids would scream and raise their hands, “I can, I can”. When he asked “who can kick the ball over the goal post?” in NZ schools, the kids would quietly point to one kid and say, “Billy can!!”.
We are quietly humble, we are pragmatic and we get the job done. We tackle things with unique humour; brevity is the soul of our wit. Game on folks.
Let’s go – lockdown – we’ve got this.
