Harriet is in trouble

Me: What is going on?

Nell: I have just had harsh words with Harriet.

Me: I noticed she was wearing her guilty face. I can’t resist her when she does that.

Nell: Well, you are going to have to, because this cannot continue. If she doesn’t stop she will find herself sleeping in the barn with the large animals.

Me: Goodness me. What has she done?

Nell: She pulled off the protective blankets and ate the sofa cushion again.

Me: Oh dear. That is naughty.

Nell: She has been told repeatedly not to do it.

Me: I know. It’s so unlike her.

Nell: She is easily bored. She says she can’t help herself.

Me: She is such a good girl normally. I’m sure she feels awful about it.

Nell: Feeling awful after you’ve done something doesn’t forgive doing it.

Me: True.

Nell: David is walking around covered in feathers.

Me: Do you think he was involved?

Nell: No. He’s not a sofa chewer. He has his favourite towel to chew if needed, and his toys.

Me: Maybe the feathers are the attraction?

Nell: Yes, I rather think they might be. Anyway, this definitely has to stop.

Me: I agree.

Nell: I woke up with a feather in my mouth. I thought it was a sign from Charlie.

Me: Perhaps it was.

Nell: It was from the sofa. You know that and I know that.

Me: Yes.

Nell: Please tell me there isn’t a penguin outside with a film camera.

Me: Do you mean the one in a hat?

Nell: Of course I mean the one in the hat. How many penguins do you think there are filming through our window?

Me: Shall I ask it in?

Nell: No.

Me: It’s getting awfully wet.

Nell: It’s a penguin.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
