A: I want to try out for the tennis team.
B: Our school doesn't have a tennis team.
A: Yes it does. They were practicing after school yesterday.
B: Were they using a birdie?
A: Of course not! That'd be animal abuse!
B: A birdie is a plastic, red-nosed tool for badminton.
A: Oh, I see. Yes, they were using a red tool.
B: Then the sport you saw was definitely badminton.
A: Is that also why the rackets were so small and thin?
B: Yes. It's somewhat similar to tennis, though.
A: Well, in that case, I want to join the badminton team!
B: I wish you the best of luck!
