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.
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.
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.
