Sherlock Martin Strikes Again

Me: Is something strange going on?

Nell: Why would you say that?

Me: There’s been an awful lot of noise this morning and the llamas are wearing sequinned dressing gowns.

Nell: A little impractical for dancing in a field, perhaps, but understandable in the circumstances.

Me: What circumstances?

Nell: Have you noticed anything different about me?

Me: Not really. You’re wearing a rather ostentatious crown for a Friday morning but I’m sure you have your reasons.

Nell: I do.

Me: Has it got something to do with Arctic Bob?

Nell: It has.

Me: And the fact he’s wearing Dave’s top hat and a feather boa.?

Nell: Yes.

Me: Did they find The Cat’s jewellery box?

Nell: Yes, Sherlock Martin, they did.

Me: That’s wonderful news. Lionel King must be furious.

Nell: It’s his fault for spending too much time in the ready meal section at Barks and Spencer.

Me: It’s easily done. So, what happened?

Nell: Knitwear Wolf and Beauregard chased the Beefies off the ship with the help of Owl Pacino and the Royal Owl Force.

Me: Good for them.

Nell: They sailed the ship back escorted by Arctic Bob, Princess and the Navy Seals.

Me: How did they get the box to shore?

Nell: Arctic Bob is very strong, you know. Once on land the box was placed in Rupert’s sidecar with Princess and he drove it home to The Cat.

Me: And tumultuous applause, no doubt.

Nell: Princess clapped all the way.

Me: It’s a seal thing.

Nell: Lionel had to take his shopping home on the bus.

Me: Does he even have a home?

Nell: Of sorts. He’s staying at the hotel on Burgh Island again.

Me: I wish I’d been there.

Nell: Our Penguin filmed it all. It’s trending on YouChewed.

Me: Of course. Sorry.
