Beaches, Bunnies and Doubloons

Me: Look at Harriet rushing into the sea.

Nell: Kev threw her ball.

Me: It’s a joy to watch.

Nell: The beach is where she can really be free.

Me: Yes. Talking of free spirits, has Miss Maple had the chance to interview Benjamin Bunny yet?

Nell: His name is Jonathan Rabbit and there’s absolutely no point in trying to interview a stuffed animal.

Me: True. I’ve noticed Dave’s not very talkative after his tea.

Nell: Very funny.

Me: You know you said Jonathan Rabbit was heavy?

Nell: Yes.

Me: You don’t think he’s full of jewellery, do you?

Nell: My tiara and pearls don’t weigh that much and Mutley’s cufflinks weigh nothing at all.

Me: It’s just that he has a furry chest.

Nell: What’s that got to do with it?

Me: Maybe his furry chest is concealing a secret pocket.

Nell: You have far too vivid an imagination for your own good.

Me: I think Poppy should slice him open with her sword. He might be full of doubloons.

Nell: Doubloons? We’re not on a pirate ship.

Me: Lionel King has a ship and he’s the most piratey animal we know.

Nell: Good grief.

Me: And gold is heavy.

Nell: The rabbit is full of sand. He’s a doorstop.

Me: Also, that Stuffed Tiger seems very protective of him.

Nell: You do realise that someone is moving the stuffed animals around, don’t you?

Me: Hasn’t Sidney the Spider’s webcam picked up anything?

Nell: Nothing of any interest.

Me: I bet someone tampered with the footage. Probably deleted it.

Nell: Sally told me Miss Maple has decided to get The Boys involved.

Me: Are we talking armed assailants here?

Nell: No. Clever Dachshunds. Hope and Leo. I told you about them before. They’re coming to stay.

Me: Right. Sorry.
