Harriet is Fearless and Princess Faces a Dilemma

Me: Harriet is absolutely fearless.

Nell: That’s one word for it.

Me: She runs into the sea no matter how cold it is.

Nell: Extraordinary behaviour if you ask me.

Me: There was a time when you would have done that too.

Nell: Well, it’s certainly not happening now. The water is freezing.

Me: Kev was hardy, wearing shorts.

Nell: He’s working on the house at the moment so those are his work clothes.

Me: You wouldn’t see me in shorts.

Nell: Thank goodness for that. The mere idea. Now, we need to update everyone on the Princess and Sir Roger Blubbery situation.

Me: Oh yes. Did he propose?

Nell: He did.

Me: And did she say yes?

Nell: Well, she had a mouth full of mackerel at the time but after she’d finished she told him she’d think about it.

Me: I thought she liked Sir Roger Blubbery.

Nell: She does but she’s worried about losing her name.

Me: What do you mean?

Nell: She prefers Princess to Lady Blubbery.

Me: She would still be called Princess even if she was Lady Blubbery which she won’t be, by the way.

Nell: Why not?

Me: Because Poppy knighted Sir Roger so it isn’t actually real.

Nell: It’s extremely real to Sir Roger and should Princess accept his fin in marriage I am sure it will be real to her too.

Me: In that case you need to let her know that she could be Lady Princess Blubbery.

Nell: Why do I have to let her know?

Me: She confided in you.

Nell: I think you will find she confided in the Daily Growl. The article is on page 5 if I remember correctly.

Me: Really?

Nell: Yes. ‘Will Princess give Sir Roger the Royal Seal of Approval?’

Me: Gosh. Sorry.
