Mistakes are being made

Me: Beautiful Harriet.

Nell: She says NOIR are unhappy with the Beefies.

Me: I bet they are. Chucking diamonds around like that.

Nell: Exactly. Apparently a group of beachcombing beagles found a diamond on Bantham beach.

Me: In a baguette?

Nell: Not anymore, but, as they explained to the Daily Growl, a baguette is there to be eaten and they were hungry.

Me: Dave would understand.

Nell: Madame Odile has been reprimanded from above.

Me: Good God.

Nell: Not that far above. It has reached the ears of the evil head of NOIR.

Me: Do birds have ears?

Nell: Of course they do. They are hidden by feathers.

Me: Ah, Inner ears not earring ears.

Nell: I worry about you sometimes. Anyway, Sally and Charlie are rather pleased as they are hoping the evil head of NOIR might actually pay the bakery a visit and finally be unmasked.

Me: Don’t they know who it is?

Nell: No. They only know the name.

Me: Is it Blofeld?

Nell: Certainly not. It’s Savoiardi.

Me: It sounds Italian.

Nell: Yes. It means sponge finger.

Me: Obviously, not to be trifled with.

Nell: Do stop. So we need to encourage the Beefies to keep dropping baguettes. David and Gladys are in charge of provocation.

Me: They should be good at that.

Nell: We are positioning our people across the area. Owl Pacino is coordinating with Sally. We will work in pairs. If a baguette is dropped, we will be there. Surreptitiously and in disguise, of course.

Me: I can’t wait.

Nell: I can’t believe I am saying this, but you and I are a team.

Me: I know we are.

Nell: No. Sally has chosen you to be my partner.

Me: You mean I’m included?

Nell: Yes. Now don’t let me down by overreacting.

Me: Just one excited jump in the air then? Sorry.
