Swiping the Paw

Me: We had a lovely long walk in the countryside, didn’t we?

Nell: Yes, it was delightful to be out and about again.

Me: I love the way you take your time.

Nell: I am a senior labrador. We don’t like to be rushed.

Me: Poppy is theoretically a senior terrier but she rushes everywhere.

Nell: We’re talking about Poppy here. Taking your Time isn’t in her vocabulary.

Me: There was certainly an awful lot of toast flying around this morning.

Nell: Those jewellery wearing Beefies were back.

Me: Are there more of them now?

Nell: Yes. One of them had long earrings.

Me: I didn’t know seagulls had ears.

Nell: Of course they have ears. All birds do. How do you think they can hear?

Me: I’ve never seen a bird’s ears.

Nell: That’s because they’re not external like ours. They are under their feathers.

Me: How can it wear earrings then?

Nell: It’s not wearing them. It’s carrying them around.

Me: What’s the fun in that?

Nell: Beefies just enjoy to annoy.

Me: They certainly do.

Nell: Well, they had better not fly too near to Oliver’s tree house because Beauregard is up there and tigers are notoriously good at Swiping the Paw.

Me: Swiping the Paw?

Nell: Yes, and believe me you do not want to be on the other end of that.

Me: Did Beauregard get his medallion back from Lionel King, by the way?

Nell: Yes.

Me: I bet there was some Swiping of the Paw going on then.

Nell: Possibly, Rupert said words were most definitely exchanged.

Me: It’s lucky wolves don’t Swipe the Paw or Lionel King would have been in big trouble.

Nell: Lionel King is in big trouble and how do you know Rupert doesn’t Swipe the Paw?

Me: Yes. Sorry.
