Me: Look at the puppies in the sunshine.

Nell: I’m glad to see David is remaining alert. Harriet fell asleep during Sunday Songs.

Me: It’s easily done. I noticed all the Welsh corgi choir were in tank tops.

Nell: Yes. When they left home it was quite chilly apparently.

Me: You’re going to laugh but I thought I saw a Beefy in a tank top just now.

Nell: Was it sneezing?

Me: Yes, and I think it shouted ‘Sorry’.

Nell: That will be Benjamin.

Me: Benjamin?

Nell: Yes.

Me: Benjamin Beefy?

Nell: I don’t actually know his surname but he is part of the Beefy gang. He’s a friend of Malcolm and Timothy’s.

Me: Malcolm and Timothy?

Nell: You’re repeating everything I say again. Please stop.

Me: But Malcolm is a flamingo.

Nell: Yes.

Me: And Timothy is a turkey.

Nell: I am aware. I saved him if you remember.

Me: And Benjamin is an evil seagull.

Nell: I’m going to have to stop you right there. Not all seagulls are evil.

Me: I know. Susan is a good seagull.

Nell: Exactly.

Me: But Benjamin is a Beefy.

Nell: Not all Beefies are bad.

Me: I think you’ll find they are.

Nell: No. Timothy assures me that Benjamin would leave the Beefies if he could but he is too scared.

Me: Is that why he keeps sneezing?

Nell: No. That’s because of his allergies.

Me: Why is he wearing a tank top?

Nell: Rupert is worried about his weak chest.

Me: So Knitwear Wolf knows Benjamin too?

Nell: Yes. We all do. We met him after Timothy’s art class.

Me: You did?

Nell: He’s been going to classes for months. He painted the portrait of Henry and Horst in the living room. Do keep up.

Me: I didn’t know. Sorry.
