Me: You’ve got that look.
Nell: I’m very disappointed.
Me: Is it because Knitwear Wolf is wearing a loose cardigan?
Nell: Certainly not. Rupert is completely justified in dressing down this morning.
Me: Is it because of that letter from Myfanwy?
Nell: It is.
Me: I thought it might be.
Nell: We must all keep a special eye on him. Poppy made him two boiled eggs with soldiers for breakfast.
Me: Did he eat them?
Nell: He wasn’t hungry which was fortunate because David ate them by mistake. He was helping take the top off the eggs and just carried on.
Me: It’s easily done.
Nell: Yes, but he’d had a bowl of porridge already.
Me: Porridge isn’t the same, though. It’s good for you food. Like quinoa and kale.
Nell: Anyway, that’s not the point. Rupert is suffering and needs our support.
Me: What was in the letter?
Nell: Myfanwy has ended it.
Me: Oh no.
Nell: Apparently he isn’t good enough for her.
Me: Rupert? Not good enough? That’s ridiculous. He’s handsome and brave.
Nell: He doesn’t have enough corgi in him.
Me: He’s a wolf. He won’t have any corgi in him.
Nell: You never know nowadays though, do you? Not all of us are Kennel Club registered. Ask Poppy.
Me: Where has all this come from?
Nell: Myfanwy has been zooming regularly with Lady Anwen and the royal corgis and they have been filling her head with nonsense.
Me: Poor Knitwear Wolf. Nell?
Me: You know you said we were keeping a special eye on Rupert?
Me: Does that include his motorbike? Only Gladys and Alejandro just rode past on it.
Nell: Were they wearing helmets?
Me: Yes, everyone was.
Me: Princess and Our Penguin were in the sidecar. Sorry.
