The Stuffed Tiger is Behaving Suspiciously

Nell: You’re not going to believe this.

Me: I just might.

Nell: Evidence shows that the Stuffed Tiger is spying on Harriet.

Me: You do know the Stuffed Tiger isn’t real, don’t you?

Nell: Of course I do.

Me: And Harriet is actually the spy?

Nell: A witness saw the Stuffed Tiger lurking behind the Yellow Chair.

Me: A witness? Who?

Nell: It was David, if you must know.

Me: Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy keeping an eye on his sister.

Nell: Fortunately, David had his iBone with him as he was expecting a call about turning on the Kingsbridge Christmas lights so he took a couple of photos.

Me: Is Dave turning on the Kingsbridge Christmas lights this year?

Nell: He’s the mayor. It’s his job. But that’s not the point.

Me: No. Was Harriet doing anything special when the Stuffed Tiger was spying on her?

Nell: Not really. She was just Having a Think.

Me: Not talking to Sally?

Nell: No. Any talks with Sally are held in secret.

Me: Of course. So, not much for the Stuffed Tiger to spy on at all really?

Nell: It doesn’t know that.

Me: It doesn’t know anything. It’s stuffed.

Nell: But what with? That’s the question.

Me: Is it?

Nell: Goodness only knows what could be hiding in there.

Me: I think it’s just fluff.

Nell: But you don’t know.

Me: True.

Nell: Anybody could be using it to transmit information.

Me: About what?

Nell: The Goings On.

Me: What Goings On?

Nell: There’s always something going on here.

Me: We’re not exactly MI5. It’s usually discussions about missing bacon, or Gladys sleeping in your handbag.

Nell: Has she been doing that again?

Me: No. It was just an example.

Nell: Leave my handbag out of this, please.

Me: Sorry.
