….I don’t know why you won’t make a cartoon about a cat. Do you remember we’d go to the pictures and Smutty would be waiting for us outside the cinema when we came out?

“I didn’t think you were particularly fond of cats.”  I don’t know what you’re talking about. We used to have a cat. You remember Smutty, don’t you?

“Enough is enough, Mum. Beards, moustaches … I don’t need this at the moment. I feel like taking a break.” A break, dear?

“Yes. Stop hurting my head with these daft conversations. I’m just going to go off and pull some weeds or make some crumpets or something.” That sounds nice, dear. And I really do understand. But I don’t think you can just go and leave me here you know.

Oh, well, if you really must … then I wouldn’t say no to a couple of those crumpets.
