Poppy has had enough

Me: Poppy is in her Christmas palace and won’t come out.

Nell: She needs some quiet so David is guarding her.

Me: He was asleep the last time I checked.

Nell: He was up late rehearsing with his Merry Dogs.

Me: They were rather loud.

Nell: I can understand the corgis but the Whippets Institute?

Me: They were very merry.

Nell: I blame the mulled wine.

Me: I’m not surprised Poppy wants some peace.

Nell: Did you see that Beefy?

Me: Which one?

Nell: Dressed in black with long hair and a beard.

Me: Not David’s wig again?

Nell: Probably. It wants to be in the pantomime.

Me: What?

Nell: Even produced credentials.

Me: Gosh. What did they say?

Nell: ‘This is a very bad Beefy.’

Me: Well, we all know that.

Nell: Signed by Stephen Seagull.

Me: He’ll want to be in it next.

Nell: He already does. There is a huge argument going on about pantomimes being for everyone, good and bad.

Me: Goodness me. No wonder Poppy has had enough.

Nell: Malcolm is trying to be the voice of reason.

Me: Bless him.

Nell: He thinks this may be a way of uniting everyone.

Me: Good luck with that.

Nell: In the end it comes down to Knitwear Wolf.

Me: Why?

Nell: He is playing the Sheriff of Nottingham. Can he cope with a band of Beefies?

Me: If anyone can, he can.

Nell: That’s what Charlie thinks.

Me: What about Gladys? She’s directing too.

Nell: Gladys says it adds an element of risk and spontaneity.

Me: The sword fights are certainly going to be risky.

Nell: No swords allowed. Only baguettes and possibly mackerel.

Me: How about a green salad?

Nell: What are you talking about? You can’t fight with lettuce.

Me: Of course not. Sorry.
