Fieldless Case #1 – Anticipation

Achyü asked a player who appeared at slip catching practice for the first time “Have I ever seen you here before?” The player answered “No sir, you have not.”

“Then have an energy bar” said Achyü.

He then turned to a second player and said to him “Have I ever seen you here before?” The second player answered “Yes, of course you have.”

“Then have an energy bar” said Achyü.

Later, groundsman asked Achyü “How is it that you make the same offer of an energy bar whatever the reply to your question?”

At this Achyü shouted “Groundsman, are you still here?”

“Of course, master!” the groundsman answered.

“Then have an energy bar” said Achyü.
