Bites of the Round Bowl

Me: What’s going on?

Nell: It’s obvious.

Me: Not to me.

Nell: It’s a grey Tuesday so we are playing Bites of the Round Bowl.

Me: Bites of the Round Bowl?

Nell: Yes. David is Sir Lancelot and I am bold Lady Nell.

Me: Why has he got his paw on your head?

Nell: He is blessing me with the royal meal of approval while Princess Harriet looks on.

Me: Don’t you mean seal of approval?

Nell: Certainly not. Biscuits are involved.

Me: What about Poppy?

Nell: Poppy is St. George, obviously, armourless at the moment but on standby with Malcolm as a shy knight.

Me: I never knew there was such a thing as a shy knight. Is Mutley involved?

Nell: He is Merlin and The Cat is Robin Hood in tights and a feathered cap.

Me: I think you’re getting your stories confused. You’ll be telling me Gladys is Maid Marian next.

Nell: Gladys is the Sheriff of Nottingham. She’s terrifyingly good at being bad. You wouldn’t recognise her in a beard.

Me: Is Kev playing?

Nell: Of course. He’s King Arthur.

Me: What about me? Am I the Queen?

Nell: Don’t be silly. The mere idea.

Me: Oh, I just hoped I might be included.

Nell: Of course you’re the Queen. If Kev is Arthur there can only be one Guinevere. Now go and get your tall hat and veil, Gladys is about to perform a contemporary dance.

Me: Yes. Thank you. Sorry.
