It’s Time to Relax, For Some

Nell: Why is Cousin Boo holding a carrot?

Me: He was hoping to help Poppy in the kitchen. Look how proud he is. Bless him.

Nell: Well, Poppy is sleeping in the yellow chair and if I were Boo I would let her be.

Me: Okay.

Nell: Malcolm and Manuel are taking over today so he can help them. Poppy deserves a day off.

Me: She must be exhausted.

Nell: Yes. It’s been an extremely busy weekend.

Me: It was lovely though, wasn’t it?

Nell: It was.

Me: Where’s Dave?

Nell: He’s gone to take Sally to the station with Rupert. She has to get back to London.

Me: On Knitwear’s Wolf’s motorbike?

Nell: Yes. David is riding behind Rupert and Sally is in the sidecar.

Me: He’s going to feel a little low when he gets back. Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: David has no time for that. He’s an engaged animal with responsibilities.

Me: What responsibilities?

Nell: He must start planning his future.

Me: Can’t he just relax a bit first?

Nell: Certainly not.

Me: Poppy’s an engaged animal and she’s asleep.

Nell: Poppy has been engaged to John the Doberman for years. It’s different.

Me: Do you think they will ever marry?

Nell: No. I’m afraid she isn’t the marrying kind.

Me: Why did she get engaged in the first place?

Nell: She’s fond of John and he keeps other suitors at bay.

Me: Like Babycakes Gillespie?

Nell: Yes. That pug has been carrying a bagel for Poppy for quite some time now.

Me: Don’t you mean torch?

Nell: No. Why would Poppy want a torch with her morning coffee?

Me: It’s just a saying.

Nell: A saying won’t keep the wolf from the door.

Me: Is Knitwear Wolf back then?

Nell: Never mind.

Me: Sorry.
