The Doctor Who Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 567: Inventive
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 511: Cricket at dw100.

Summary: The people of earth are so inventive.

There was a lot to love about earth, that unassuming planet inhabited by the primitive apes known as humans. The people themselves were quite charming in their way; they had a lot of good qualities, including curiosity, determination, and inventiveness.

What other race would have invented Jelly Babies, Jammie Dodgers, Jaffa Cakes, chips, and teabags? Admittedly the tea in the bags wasn’t always the best, but it was the idea that counted.

Best of all their ideas though had to be cricket, such a wonderful game! Bat, ball, stumps, a game for gentlemen. Oh yes, the Doctor simply loved cricket!
