Who tastes first?

Me: Why were you four gathered around Kev?

Nell: He was making a cheese and tomato sandwich and we were waiting to see Who Tastes First?

Me: And who was it?

Nell: Actually, this time it was me.

Me: Why you?

Nell: Because it was my turn.

Me: How do you know?

Nell: We don’t. But Kev knows. It’s actually rather exciting and livens up the day.

Me: Not for the cheeseless participants.

Nell: Nobody is cheeseless. And that isn’t even a word, by the way. Everyone gets a taste but it’s all about Who Tastes First?

Me: Yes.

Nell: I was telling the puppies that it is a good way of improving Waiting skills and Dealing with Disappointment.

Me: Poppy doesn’t seem too happy.

Nell: She’s off to her Anger Management class again so she’s working on her Irritability Levels.

Me: I thought it was supposed to be about calming you down not getting you cross.

Nell: Poppy is one of the stars of the course. People expect a degree of short temper from her. She needs to be in the right frame of mind.

Me: Is poor Malcolm going again?

Nell: Of course. I think Babycakes Gillespie is even sending a car for them both.

Me: Gosh. Maybe we’ll get to meet him, or do you think he will just send one of his hit dogs?

Nell: Hit dogs? This isn’t a hit. His driver is simply taking them to class.

Me: Are you sure?

Nell: Yes. It’s a kind gesture and saves Knitwear Wolf from taking them on his motorbike.

Me: Well, I hope Poppy takes her sword and maybe Malcolm should take a whisk, or a wooden spoon.

Nell: A whisk, or a wooden spoon? I worry about you sometimes. I really do.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
