David makes another mistake

Me: Is there any news from Dartmoor?

Nell: I am waiting for Poppy to call me back. There was an incident during breakfast at the hotel and she had to go and deal with it.

Me: What happened?

Nell: David ate the bacon by mistake.

Me: Easily done.

Nell: It was a buffet. It was everybody’s bacon.

Me: Oh dear. Were they very angry?

Nell: Let’s just say it’s fortunate that Poppy had her sword.

Me: Oh no.

Nell: People feel very strongly about bacon when they are on holiday.

Me: Yes, they do.

Nell: Apparently voices were raised.

Me: What is Poppy going to do?

Nell: She’s in their kitchen making bacon sandwiches while Gladys entertains guests with a contemporary dance and Alejandro shakes his maracas.

Me: I didn’t know he had any.

Nell: Yes, he takes them everywhere. In the meantime David is writing a letter of apology.

Me: Is it all going well otherwise?

Nell: Susan and Henry have arrived at Beefy Mansion and are waiting to connect with Horst.

Me: How are they going to do that?

Nell: Susan will admire Sven Gully’s knitwear and when she is next to him Horst can leap into her feathers.

Me: I didn’t know woodlice could leap.

Nell: They are excellent leapers. They never do it when someone is looking but you would be amazed.

Me: I am amazed.

Nell: There is much more to a woodlouse than meets the eye.

Me: Yes. I’m learning that.

Nell: Did my iBone just ting?

Me: Yes.

Nell: It’s a message on WoofsApp from Poppy.

Me: What does it say?

Nell: ‘Bacon sandwiches going down well.’

Me: That’s a relief. Anything else?

Nell: ‘Gladys and Alejandro receive standing ovation.’

Me: Seriously?

Nell: Of course. Have you seen Gladys dance?

Me: Yes. Sorry.
