After the Meeting

Me: So how did it go?

Nell: England won. I’m exhausted.

Me: I mean the meeting.

Nell: There were a few hiccups.

Me: Dave’s hat was torn.

Nell: Yes, so they went to Starbarks as arranged but there was a message from The Beefies saying they had changed the venue to Featherstones.

Me: Oh no. Did Dave get his cappuccino?

Nell: Yes, and a blueberry muffin. You worry about the most ridiculous things.

Me: He gets hungry.

Nell: Anyway, they drove to Featherstones and went inside. The whole place was full of birds.

Me: What?

Nell: Everywhere. They sat down and then a deep voice said “Welcome, gentlemen. My name is Seagull. Stephen Seagull. What can I do for you today?”

Me: Goodness. Was that the Beefy boss?

Nell: Yes. Mutley started to tell him they had spoken to Dominic Simmons and knew about the fake jewellery but he just laughed.

Me: How rude.

Nell: Things went from bad to worse. Mutley tried to reason with them telling them to stop but all they did was shout and you know how annoying that is.

Me: I do.

Nell: Meanwhile David was outside in the car, eating his muffin and enjoying his cappuccino.

Me: Dear Dave.

Nell: When he saw a seagull land on the bonnet he wasn’t too worried as he likes birds, until it reached in and stole his muffin.

Me: Oh no!

Nell: And then another one started tugging at his hat and a third soiled the car windscreen.

Me: How disgusting!

Nell: Yes. David was left no choice and decided to press the horn. Mutley and the Bulldog Boys came rushing out followed by a huge flock of screaming seagulls.

Me: Terrifying.

Nell: They drove home at once and have been in meetings since they got back. Thank goodness for Woof’s App.

Me: Is Dave alright?

Nell: Yes, a little shaken but Poppy is making him some fresh muffins and Harriet is mending his hat. I do hope this doesn’t mean we will have to go to the mattresses.

Me: I don’t think anyone is tired yet.

Nell: No. It means going to war. Do keep up.

Me: Oh. Sorry.
