Boxing Day Hoedown

Me: Why is Harriet wearing a cowboy hat?

Nell: She’s going to the Farm Dogs’ Boxing Day hoedown with Jim.

Me: Can I go?

Nell: Of course, we are all going. Have you seen my Stetson?

Me: No.

Nell: The Cat thinks it needs a few sequins.

Me: I don’t think I have a hat.

Nell: Of course you do. It’s hanging next to all the others above the cowboy boots.

Me: I never noticed.

Nell: Poppy has been wearing her hat and boots all morning. Didn’t you wonder why?

Me: Not really. You know what Poppy is like.

Nell: True. There will be line dancing, by the way, so you might want to join Gladys’s class this afternoon. David is calling.

Me: Gosh.

Nell: Malcolm has managed to persuade Timothy to give it a go. The Cat has made him a sequinned neckerchief.

Me: Is Mutley coming?

Nell: Yes. Pizza Mutt are doing the catering so Poppy can have a night off.

Me: Good idea.

Nell: Did David just walk past me in a long black coat, smoking a cheroot and carrying Gladys in my handbag?

Me: Yes.

Nell: Was Gladys dressed as a cowgirl?

Me: Yes.

Nell: And was The Cat’s chihuahua sitting on David’s hat smoking a cigarillo?

Me: Yes. I’m afraid so. Sorry.
