Charming Interrogation

Me: Dave and Sally sang a beautiful duet at Sunday Songs this morning.

Nell: Yes, although I’m not sure ‘You’re The One That I Want’ is very suitable for a Sunday.

Me: I loved it.

Nell: Gladys and the llamas took it too far as usual. Leather jackets and black wigs. I almost prefer their pyjamas.

Me: So what does Sally think about Babycakes Gillespie?

Nell: Not a lot, I suspect.

Me: He seemed rather taken with her. When he was introduced, his mouth fell open.

Nell: Most uncouth.

Me: And then he tried to sit next to her at dinner.

Nell: Until David sat on him.

Me: Yes.

Nell: Normally, I don’t approve of David sitting on guests but in this case I’ll make an exception.

Me: Poppy wasn’t impressed. I could tell by the way she plonked his mackerel on the table.

Nell: I’m not sure I would use the word plonked, but she did place his plate down in an angry manner.

Me: And it wasn’t cooked, Nell. It looked like something recently thrown at you by a Beefy.

Nell: Yes, I wondered why Babycakes was given raw mackerel when we all had grilled sea bass.

Me: Sally asked him, didn’t she?

Nell: Yes. She said, ‘So, Mr Gillespie, it would seem uncooked mackerel is your favourite fish. Would you care to explain?’

Me: I love it when Sally does that.

Nell: What?

Me: Her Sally questions.

Nell: Are you talking about Charming Interrogation?

Me: Probably.

Nell: It was one of Charlie’s skills, too. You find yourself telling them everything.

Me: I know. The things I’ve told Sally.

Nell: Excuse me? I thought I was your confidante.

Me: You are, Nell. I only told Sally about the bacon sandwich.

Nell: You had secret bacon?

Me: Yes. Sorry.
