The Right Decision

Nell: Go outside and help Harriet.

Me: Why?

Nell: She has a difficult decision to make and needs support.

Me: You’re the one who makes the decisions around here.

Nell: Yes, and I’ve decided to send you.

Me: I’m dreadful at making decisions, Nell. What about Knitwear Wolf? He’s ever so good at being wise.

Nell: Rupert is way too involved and so am I. As Head Judge I need to remain impartial.

Me: What about?

Nell: Tiaras. Do keep up.

Me: But you’re going to the Halloween Special tonight as Morticia Addams.

Nell: Well, thank you very much for letting everyone know my costume.

Me: Oops. So, who wants to wear a tiara?

Nell: Unfortunately Gladys and Myfanwy both want to wear the same one.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: Gladys has opted for straight hair and she says a tiara is just the thing, but when she chose one The Cat said Myfanwy wants to wear it.

Me: Who is Myfanwy going as?

Nell: Beauty.

Me: That means Knitwear Wolf is the Beast.

Nell: I know. A ridiculous idea. I can’t think of anyone less beast like than Rupert.

Me: I’m surprised he agreed.

Nell: He says it will be fun.

Me: Why is Harriet making the decision?

Nell: David refused and so did The Cat.

Me: I bet Poppy would be happy to oblige.

Nell: Yes. But would she make the right decision?

Me: What is the right decision?

Nell: Gladys, of course. How can you even ask?

Me: Maybe the right decision would be that nobody wears it and they just choose a different one.

Nell: See. That’s exactly why you are going outside to help Harriet.

Me: I am?

Nell: Yes. I knew I made the right decision asking you. Off you go.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
