You grab the handlebars of the bike and take control…
…while behind you, I unholster my Email Copywriting Compendium shotgun … and begin unloading it at the goo-‘roo.
Unfortunately for me…
Your attention has been caught by a shiny item box ahead … causing you to swerve the bike wildly in an attempt to pick it up.
The good news:
You get it.
The bad news:
I cannot shoot a goo-‘roo while you swerve like this.
“Hold this thing STEADY!” I yell.
“Sorry!!!” you shout back.
The goo-‘roo lurches closer.
It takes one last giant leap …
…comes flying through the air towards us, and…
This time … I nail the shot.
The goo-‘roo keels over, mortally wounded. It won’t be hopping after us any time soon.
“All right!” you scream.
We zoom off on the bike, leaving the goo-‘roo lying on the trail behind us.
A minute or so later, you turn the bike around a blind corner of the dirt trail, and …
Come face-to-face with the unharmed goo-‘roo, standing right in front of us!
“AHHHHHHH!” you scream. “IT’S NOT DEAD!”
“HARD LEFT! HARD LEFT!” I yell.
