Benjamin is armed and ready

Nell: Are you listening to me?

Me: Yes.

Nell: You appear to be writing.

Me: I can write and listen.

Nell: I need your undivided attention so stop writing now.

Me: Gosh, you’re bossy.

Nell: Benjamin is armed and ready.

Me: Armed? I don’t think guns are the answer, Nell.

Nell: Good grief.

Me: You said Benjamin was armed.

Nell: Yes, with rock cakes and a stale baguette. Do keep up.

Me: Oh, I see. I hope it isn’t too heavy for him.

Nell: He’s used to carrying Gull No. 5 around in his rucksack so it shouldn’t be a problem.

Me: Is Henry wearing his armour?

Nell: Of course. He’s travelling in Benjamin’s hat and will provide Motivational Support.

Me: Will Benjamin hear him? Henry has a very small voice.

Nell: David can hear him perfectly.

Me: True. Is Benjamin wearing a tank top?

Nell: Yes. Knitwear Wolf had one made in Brave Colours.

Me: What are Brave Colours?

Nell: Whatever you want them to be.

Me: Mine was pink yesterday to go to the dentist.

Nell: I know and it worked.

Me: Yes. The dentist was pleased with me. What are Benjamin’s Brave Colours?

Nell: Sea blue and Devon green.

Me: I hope he isn’t too warm.

Nell: It’s cooler in the sky.

Me: But Beefy HQ isn’t in the sky.

Nell: No. It’s on Drake’s Island in Plymouth Sound.

Me: I hope there isn’t too much sound or we won’t hear Stephen Seagull’s confession through the wire.

Nell: Fortunately Our Penguin will be filming it all as a back up.

Me: He’s not travelling in Benjamin’s hat too, is he?

Nell: Don’t be ridiculous. Princess is going to swim down there with Our Penguin on her back. Do try and be a little realistic.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
