Poppy receives a letter

Me: Poppy is upstairs with a fierce face.

Nell: I know.

Me: I nearly said Cheeky Animal because I saw her tongue, but I decided against it.

Nell: A wise decision.

Me: It’s about that letter, isn’t it?

Nell: I told you she doesn’t want to discuss the letter.

Me: But I need to know.

Nell: No, you don’t. You just want to know.

Me: It’s the same thing.

Nell: It most certainly isn’t. As I said to David, ‘There is a big difference between wanting bacon and needing it.’

Me: I’m not sure there is, as far as Dave is concerned.

Nell: If I tell you, then you have to promise to keep quiet.

Me: I’m not sure I can.

Nell: Well, try.

Me: I will.

Nell: Poppy has been asked to attend an Anger Management course.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: Don’t laugh.

Me: I hope she can take her sword.

Nell: Don’t be silly. That’s what got her into this mess.

Me: It was a frying pan.

Nell: You know what I mean. Those wretched Beefies reported her for wild and aggressive behaviour.

Me: Troublemakers. What is she going to do?

Nell: She says she’s not going and she will fight anyone who tries to make her.

Me: That’s not going to help her case.

Nell: No.

Me: I wish Mutley was here.

Nell: Yes. He is sadly missed.

Me: What about Knitwear Wolf? He is wearing a particularly reassuring knitted cardigan today. She might listen to him.

Nell: She won’t. She is refusing to listen to anyone.

Me: I do hope she comes round and agrees to go, otherwise she might be facing a lengthy imprisonment.

Nell: Imprisonment? She only bashed a few Beefies. It will be a fine at the most.

Me: Oh, I see. Sorry.
