“That’s probably where they… weave in and out of poles,” Georgia replied, beginning the sentence before realising that she had no better words to describe it than Juniper had already used and which she guessed her roommate had figured from the name, “Er, like… agility skills.” Georgia had watched plenty of agility shows on tv over the years - partly because it was the next best thing to actually having a puppy, but also because she just enjoyed staring at the pretty moving wallpaper. The TV had been a fairly consistent fixture of her childhood.
