Saturday Pondering

Me: Have you got a furrowed brow?

Nell: Not particularly.

Me: You look like you have.

Nell: I’m Pondering on something very important. Can’t an animal Ponder in peace around here?

Me: It depends what you’re Pondering on.

Nell: No, it doesn’t.

Me: If you are Pondering on the meaning of life I would love to join you. I have lots of thoughts about that, especially at this time of year.

Nell: I’m not.

Me: Are you Pondering on whether to have a second breakfast? Dave is always available to discuss options.

Nell: How do you know I’ve had a first breakfast?

Me: It’s Saturday. I smelt the bacon.

Nell: I may have a piece of shortbread with my tea later, but that’s not what I’m thinking about.

Me: Is it a matter of the heart? Only I saw Knitwear Wolf talking to you earlier.

Nell: It has nothing to do with the heart. Rupert and I were discussing outfits, if you must know.

Me: Are you Pondering the advantages of Knitwear over Animal Print then?

Nell: Animal Print?

Me: Tiger stripes can be very attractive.

Nell: Why are you winking? Rupert and I were discussing hats.

Me: Hats?

Nell: Yes. The Daily Growl want to take some publicity shots before the start of Strictly.

Me: Why don’t you ask The Cat?

Nell: Because I’m not sure an ostrich feather, or tiara, is the way I want to go.

Me: They are better than a bobble hat.

Nell: Rupert will be wearing a top hat.

Me: Is he going to be in the photos too?

Nell: Of course. Rupert is one of the professional dancers.

Me: Is he? I didn’t know.

Nell: Rupert’s dancing is renowned. You must have heard of The Wolf of Waltz Street.

Me: I hadn’t. Sorry.
