Sally is Annoyed and David Makes a Mistake

Me: Have you seen Dave?

Nell: David is downstairs in the kitchen with Harriet.

Me: Waiting for a second breakfast?

Nell: No. Keeping Out Of The Way.

Me: Oh dear. Did something happen at the pop-up bar yesterday?

Nell: I would say ask Rupert but then he would need a voice to answer me.

Me: Has Knitwear Wolf got a cold?

Nell: No. He nobly sacrificed his voice to save David’s.

Me: Oh no. What happened?

Nell: David was about to drink a Bantham Breeze cocktail, even though he had been expressly told not to, and Rupert had to jump in and drink it to save him.

Me: Who was supposed to drink it?

Nell: Malcolm. He was chosen by Sally as he is a shy flamingo with a very small voice. He was waiting in the wings.

Me: Or even with wings. See what I did there?

Nell: David says, in his defence, he’d drunk so many cocktails by then that he forgot.

Me: It was an easy mistake to make. Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: He was supposed to Sip not Gulp.

Me: Is Sally very annoyed with him?

Nell: Extremely. He’s been told to stay under the kitchen table with Harriet until further notice.

Me: Did Jonathan manage to see what went in a Bantham Breeze?

Nell: Yes, he thinks he knows what the secret ingredient might be.

Me: What is it?

Nell: You’re going to have to wait. Roley Moley is working with Sally now on an antidote.

Me: In the meantime we must be prepared for Beefies howling at the moon.

Nell: Rupert has never howled at the moon in his entire life.

Me: True. I wonder if they’re all going to start wearing cardigans.

Nell: Don’t be ridiculous. It’s summer.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
