Me: Where is Poppy?

Nell: Having a lie in.

Me: Poppy never has a lie in and it’s Monday.

Nell: She and Malcolm were up until the early hours making macarons.

Me: I’m glad we decided that Malcolm can stay.

Nell: Yes. We still have to meet with the Count to secure Malcolm’s release.

Me: Why? Was Malcolm a prisoner?

Nell: No. Malcolm foolishly signed up to the Flamingo foreign legion.

Me: He did?

Nell: Yes, I cant think what possessed him to do such a thing. They are renowned for their brutality.

Me: Gosh.

Nell: Malcolm’s father and brothers served so I presume it was expected of him.

Me: I’m surprised he got in.

Nell: True. Anyway the Count has agreed to meet us this afternoon.

Me: Who is the Count?

Nell: Do you mean you have never heard of Count Bingo Flamingo?

Me: No, and it’s a very silly name.

Nell: Bingo is greatly feared and a ruthless soldier.

Me: Do you think the Beefies have employed Bingo’s flamingos to help them take over Pupways?

Nell: Probably. Don’t call them that. It’s not a laughing matter.

Me: What if Bingo refuses?

Nell: He won’t. Mutley and I will see to that and Poppy has her sword with John the Doberman on stand by.

Me: No wonder she is having a lie in.

Nell: Malcolm is extremely nervous so no silly talk.

Me: Where is he?

Nell: Harriet is teaching him how to knit, she learnt it from the Welsh corgis in the summer. She will be at Malcolm’s side during negotiations.

Me: Will Dave be on his other side?

Nell: Certainly not. David will be singing and Gladys will perform a contemporary dance.

Me: Of course. Sorry.
