Suspicious Activity

Me: Harriet is awfully good at Cheeky Animals.

Nell: She’s a trained spy.

Me: One minute she looks like butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth and the next she’s sticking her tongue out.

Nell: How do you feel about butter on your scone?

Me: I don’t need it. As long as I have the jam and cream I’m happy.

Nell: My friend Dorothy likes butter on hers but I find that excessive.

Me: I agree, although sometimes I do like a plain scone with just butter.

Nell: I worry about you sometimes. Anyway, you’ll be pleased to hear that David has made a breakthrough with Lionel.

Me: My clever Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: Apparently they bonded over bacon sandwiches and Lionel revealed that NOIR are also involved in the distribution of stolen gems.

Me: The Notorious Organisation of International Rooks?

Nell: The very same.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: David also noticed a very suspicious gang of rowdy blackbirds bothering the smaller birds and stealing their suet balls, so they may be involved too.

Me: I don’t think suet balls are the same as diamonds and pearls, Nell.

Nell: They are if you’re a small bird and you’re hungry.

Me: Yes, I suppose so.

Nell: Sally has asked us all to keep a close eye on any suspicious bird activity in the area.

Me: Does that include Malcolm? Only he was looking a little shifty this morning.

Nell: What are you talking about? Malcolm couldn’t look shifty if he tried. He is a completely honourable flamingo.

Me: He was definitely hiding something, Nell. He put it under his hat.

Nell: Interesting. Did it look like a prawn omelette?

Me: No. It was a simple cotton sun hat.

Nell: I meant what was under it.

Me: Oh, I didn’t see. Sorry.
