Christmas Eve

Nell: How’s Kev feeling?

Me: Still coughing but a little better than he was.

Nell: Good.

Me: What are Dave, Harriet and Poppy doing out there?

Nell: Lionel King is on his way so everyone is on high alert.

Me: Is he arriving by helicopter?

Nell: What on earth are you talking about? Lionel has fallen on hard times. He’s not going to fly in like an A-list celebrity.

Me: But they’re looking at the sky. Well, Harriet is. Dave seems to be looking in different directions. Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: David is simply covering all areas.

Me: Are we expecting Lionel to jump out at us?

Nell: Of course not. He’s far too tired and low for that. Rupert is collecting him on his motorbike.

Me: Knitwear Wolf is so kind.

Nell: Yes, he is.

Me: He’s the actual epitome of Christmas. Loving and giving. Some might even say he is too kind for his own good.

Nell: Have you quite finished?

Me: Just saying. Anyway, if Lionel is arriving with Rupert why is everyone on high alert?

Nell: We’re expecting a Beefy attack. They have turned against Lionel in a big way

Me: How big?

Nell: Stephen Seagull has promised 3 mackerel and a Santa hat for any information on his whereabouts.

Me: Gosh. Won’t they notice him in the sidecar?

Nell: No. He will be disguised as Santa.

Me: Clever idea.

Nell: We thought so.

Me: I hope they don’t get stopped by children with last minute wishes.

Nell: If they do they do. Children must be listened to, especially at Christmas.

Me: I agree. Is Rupert dressed as a reindeer?

Nell: I beg your pardon?

Me: Santa doesn’t usually travel with wolves.

Nell: Santa isn’t usually a lion in disguise.

Me: You’re right. Sorry.
