So is this all right, then ?

“You’ve got clothes on.”

Yes. At the end of your cartoon … you said that I had to put some clothes on.  I said I didn’t need clothes because I’m dead. And you said you couldn’t draw me with no clothes on.

So I put this on. It’s a sundress. I found it in a photo on your bookshelf… Me on the beach with your Aunty … 1950 something. Remember?

….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 don’t remember … I think I was too young. I do remember him liking to sit on the white line in the middle of the road, though.”

“But Mum … I’m still not making  a cartoon about a cat.”

“Mum … I don’t think I want to make a cartoon about a cat.” Why ever not?  I would.

“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?

  “Of course I remember him. But that’s not the point, Mum…”

 He was a very good ratter. We used to lend him out.
