Suited and Booted

Me: How handsome is Dave? I’m glad he got his hat back from Arctic Bob. It didn’t look the same on a walrus.

Nell: David can carry off a top hat and so can Rupert. Some animals can and some really shouldn’t.

Me: Did you see Myfanwy’s ballgown? Pale pink with little stars. Gorgeous.

Nell: Costumes aren’t everything.

Me: They are quite a lot, though, Nell. Especially on Strictly.

Nell: Let’s wait and see how the dancing goes, shall we? Although she is in safe paws with Rupert. It’s the Viennese Waltz and he is the ballroom king.

Me: Do wolves have paws, or feet?

Nell: Both. Wolves have extremely large paws with long arched toes and they also have webbed feet.

Me: I didn’t know that.

Nell: Well, you do now.

Me: I’m not sure Poppy likes her dress very much. She’s more of a trouser suit type.

Nell: She can’t be the lead all the time. Stephen Seagull has to have a go now and again.

Me: He can’t wear a dress.

Nell: Of course he can’t.

Me: Unless he wants to, of course. We mustn’t be judgemental.

Nell: Yes, we must. I’m the head judge, in case you’ve forgotten.

Me: Never mind. I know what I mean.

Nell: Poppy looks lovely in her dress. I don’t know why she’s complaining.

Me: She’s wearing boots underneath it.

Nell: Good grief.

Me: And she’s frying bacon.

Nell: It’s Saturday. Weekends mean bacon sandwiches.

Me: But should she be wearing a ballgown in the kitchen? The Cat will have a fit.

Nell: Is she wearing her long apron over it?

Me: Yes.

Nell: Tied around the middle?

Me: Yes

Nell: Well then. If David doesn’t get his bacon sandwiches he’s never going to be able to perform.

Me: No. Sorry.
