The Hearing

Me: What’s going on?

Nell: Leave it be. We are dealing with it. Poppy is cross examining and I am presiding over the proceedings from the couch.

Me: Dealing with what?

Nell: The hole in the carpet.

Me: What!

Nell: David is giving evidence now.

Me: And Harriet?

Nell: She has already been questioned.

Me: So who did it? Was it Dave, or Harriet.

Nell: The jury is out.

Me: What jury?

Nell: Good grief. You don’t think there is a real jury do you? I’m not going to get the farmer’s sheepdogs in here.

Me: Have they got a defence? Should I help?

Nell: Mutley put in a good word.

Me: Will you let me know?

Nell: After the sentencing.

Me: But Nell…

Nell: Silence in court.

Me: Sorry.
