Me: Look at those two.

Nell: Reunited after the Christmas break.

Me: They love each other.

Nell: Apparently Young Ollie stole some chocolate coins from the Christmas tree and was sick.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: I think David told Tony about the cream. They were definitely discussing Accidental Naughtiness.

Me: Accidental Naughtiness?

Nell: Yes. It can happen to anyone.

Me: But that’s not what happened to you yesterday is it?

Nell: What do you mean?

Me: When we went to the hotel for lunch with my sisters.

Nell: What are you talking about?

Me: And you went missing during lunch.

Nell: I did not go missing.

Me: You left your seat next to me and you left the dining room.

Nell: Yes, I did.

Me: We called you and searched for you.

Nell: You made an unnecessary fuss.

Me: I finally found you in the hotel lounge on the sofa in front of the fire.

Nell: I needed some quiet.

Me: The manager explained to you that dogs were not allowed on sofas.

Nell: A ridiculous notion.

Me: She asked you politely to get off and you refused.

Nell: There was plenty of room. Nobody else minded.

Me: You pretended you couldn’t hear her. I know what you’re like when you don’t want to do something. You have Selective Hearing.

Nell: The article on Knitwear Wolf in The Growl on Sunday was most complimentary, wasn’t it?

Me: You are doing it again.

Nell: It should definitely boost his sales.

Me: You can hear me perfectly well.

Nell: It mentioned Myfanwy too.

Me: I don’t think he was very happy about that.

Nell: No. He likes to keep his private life private.

Me: So you can hear me now then?

Nell: Of course. We are having a conversation.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
