We need to talk to Hollywoof

Me: Have I interrupted something?

Nell: We were just discussing Poppy and John.

Me: Can I join in?

Nell: As long as you don’t make any silly remarks.

Me: Who me?

Nell: Yes, you.

Me: Couldn’t be.

Nell: I am not going to say: “Then, who?” so stop your foolishness.

Me: Are they still not talking then?

Nell: Poppy says John should be more trusting.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: John says Tall Hollywoof gave him a knowing smile when he popped in to Starbarks for a Non-Fat Frappuccino with Extra Whipped Cream and Chocolate Sauce.

Me: That’s a silly order.

Nell: It’s certainly a mouthful.

Me: It’s like ordering a Diet Coke with a cream doughnut.

Nell: Good grief. Stop discussing his order. We need to sort this out.

Me: Where is Poppy?

Nell: The Cat has taken her to the spa for one of those pamper days. David wanted to go too but it’s all paws on deck.

Me: Absolutely.

Nell: I think we should pay a visit to Mr Hollywoof. It sounds like he might be trying to cause trouble.

Me: Good idea.

Nell: Harriet found out that Hollywoof is now working with a bird called Prue Beef.

Me: It’s not like you to call someone a bird.

Nell: No, she is a seagull. A little flamboyant and fond of chunky jewellery.

Me: Dominic Simmons is a jeweller. Is she one of the Beefies?

Nell: Probably. Not a good sign.

Me: No.

Nell: Hollywoof used to work with Beary Merry of course.

Me: She sounds familiar.

Nell: She’s a delightful lady bear of a certain age and a national treasure. You must know her. Poppy has all her cookery books.

Me: Well, if you’re off to see Hollywoof then I’m right behind you.

Nell: You most certainly are not. You are staying here. I am only taking Mutley and the puppies. You can’t be trusted to behave.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
