The problem with hair

Nell: What a morning.

Me: Why?

Nell: We were discussing Poppy’s hair. Harriet and I think she needs to book an appointment with Doug. It’s a little too wild.

Me: It’s very Poppy though, isn’t it?

Nell: Yes, but it needs taming. She says she has far too much to do to waste time on pampering.

Me: She is busy.

Nell: David said he was growing his too.

Me: He can’t.

Nell: Exactly. He was devastated when Harriet explained his hair will never grow.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: He said he wanted a ponytail like his gardening friend AJ.

Me: But AJ is an Afghan.

Nell: And then Gladys piped up from my handbag that long hair isn’t everything.

Me: She’s right.

Nell: But Gladys can’t talk. She is all hair. She’s like Cousin Itt in dog form.

Me: That’s a bit harsh.

Nell: Malcolm tried to help by saying he only has feathers but that only seemed to make it worse.

Me: Why?

Nell: I don’t know. David started rambling on about the beauty of feathers and embracing the freedom of flight.

Me: Malcolm doesn’t fly.

Nell: Finally Mutley stepped in and told David to stop whinging and embrace the freedom of short hair.

Me: Did it work?

Nell: Not really. Fortunately The Cat arrived to take David to his tap class and we could relax.

Me: Yes. They are back. I was about to tell you.

Nell: Did David just walk upstairs with my handbag?

Me: Yes.

Nell: Was he wearing a long black wig and a feather boa?

Me: Yes. I’m afraid he was. Sorry.
