Hang on a minute

Me: Any sign of them?

Nell: No. Harriet and I have looked everywhere.

Me: What exactly did Dave see?

Nell: David can’t be sure, but he thinks he saw a Beefy wearing pearls fly over the activity field and drop something.

Me: Not something disgusting again? Because you know what they’re like.

Nell: No. It was sparkly.

Me: And the Beefy was definitely wearing your pearls?

Nell: The coincidence is too great. My pearl necklace goes missing and the Beefies start wearing pearls.

Me: Only it wouldn’t have been my first choice of jewellery for them. I’d have thought a chunky choker might be more their style.

Nell: That’s not the point. Anyway, I shall be telling Lionel all about this at afternoon tea today.

Me: Hang on a minute. Did you just say Lionel?

Nell: Yes.

Me: And afternoon tea?

Nell: I told you I was going out.

Me: You are having afternoon tea with a handsome lion and you only just tell me about it now?

Nell: It’s nothing. Lionel needs some background information and apparently I am the perfect animal to help him.

Me: He called you a perfect animal, did he?

Nell: He might have done.

Me: The smooth tongued charmer.

Nell: It’s just afternoon tea.

Me: You wanted to wear your pearls.

Nell: Yes, well the Beefies soon put a stop to that.

Me: What does Knitwear Wolf think about it?

Nell: Why are you bringing Rupert into this?

Me: Just wondering.

Nell: I haven’t told him yet.

Me: I think you should.

Nell: And I think you should tell everyone that The Growl on Sunday is coming out this weekend and they should make sure they’ve subscribed.

Me: Yes. They have an amazing exclusive story and …

Nell: Enough. It’s exclusive.

Me: Oh yes. Sorry.
