Shake it out

Me: Sometimes I think we should all just go down to the beach and shake our heads at the sky.

Nell: Here we go. I had sea water in my ears. I was flapping them to get rid of it.

Me: You know what I mean. You dogs have got it right. There’s nothing like a brisk walk and a shake of the head to chase those troubles away.

Nell: Ok. I know you want me to ask you this, so I will. What troubles are we talking about here?

Me: My Big Brave Beautiful Boy is being blackmailed by the seagull mafia.

Nell: It’s the Beefies, not the mafia.

Me: They took one bacon sandwich this time. It might be a whole plateful next time.

Nell: We were discussing this at Morning Thoughts. Knitwear Wolf feels Mediation is the answer. Poppy is in favour of ‘Whacking Them’, with her sword. Her words.

Me: I can understand both points of view.

Nell: Yes, opinions were divided. Harriet, Malcolm, Susan and Benjamin were definitely in favour of Mediation but Gladys, Alejandro and the larger animals were on Poppy’s side.

Me: What about the llamas?

Nell: Conflicted. In my experience llamas struggle with making any decisions beyond which pyjamas to wear.

Me: What about Dave?

Nell: David looks up to Rupert. I think he will be guided by him.

Me: So, what’s the next step?

Nell: Rupert is going to approach Stephen Seagull after the Kingsbridge Show tomorrow. He has a place in the Craft Marquee.

Me: I didn’t know Stephen Seagull was into crafts.

Nell: He’s not. Knitwear Wolf and The Cat are exhibiting with Tony’s wife Sue. A Little Bit Crafty.

Me: And Stephen Seagull is going?

Nell: No. It’s online. Rupert will contact him afterwards.

Me: I see. Sorry.
