Dave Tries to Lighten the Mood

Nell: When will David realise that Morning Thoughts is neither the time nor the place to be playing Cheeky Animals?

Me: Why not?

Nell: We have serious matters to discuss.

Me: Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy. He just wants to lighten the mood. Bless him.

Nell: Not today. We have far too many important topics on the agenda.

Me: Such as?

Nell: Myfanwy. The Welsh Corgi Choir are considering taking her back and have asked for our opinion on the matter.

Me: That’s wonderful news.

Nell: Is it?

Me: Yes.

Nell: Myfanwy is a bad animal.

Me: Not anymore. She went to the police station and told PC Panda everything and now Knitwear Wolf is free.

Nell: He wouldn’t have been arrested in the first place if she hadn’t tricked him.

Me: She didn’t want to be a bad animal, Nell. She was afraid of Lady Anwen.

Nell: She deceived Rupert and took advantage of him.

Me: He’s forgiven her.

Nell: I know he has.

Me: They’re eating Eggs Benedict in the kitchen together right now. I’m surprised Dave isn’t with them.

Nell: David is in a meeting with me.

Me: I think Myfanwy should be given a second chance.

Nell: Most of the animals agree with you.

Me: There you are then. Who doesn’t?

Nell: The Cat is on the fence.

Me: I don’t think it should be kept outside, Nell. It has the right to voice its opinion too.

Nell: Not literally, figuratively. The Cat is in two minds about this.

Me: Why?

Nell: It says Myfanwy lacks style.

Me: What does that mean?

Nell: It wasn’t keen on Myfanwy’s hat, if you must know. ‘Too frumpy and needed a wider brim’. I quote.

Me: Style is not important.

Nell: It is to The Cat.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
