The Bag - Carry On Tuesday # 71

This weeks prompt for Carry on Tuesday  is
No one would have believed it ...

No one would have believed it if they hadn't seen it with their own eyes.
She must have been 80 if she was a day, but when the lad grabbed her bag, she was off after him like a rocket.
I caught the look in the lads eye as he did it, it went from 'ha easy', to ... 'what the...?!'
He was going flat out, and there she was, arms pumping, gaining on him with every step.
When they reached the lake, he must have just lost it because he threw the bag in the air and dove in, still frantically looking behind.
I could see in his eyes a ' Is she gonna jump in!' panicked look as he front crawled his way to the other side.
But the little old lady just stopped and picked up her bag.
I went up to her to see if she was alright.
"I'm fine thank you, sonny," she said.
Then she opened the bag and showed me inside ... and winked.
