Rushed round to see Snowball.
“I’m back, I’m back,” I cried, all out of
breath, “have you missed me terribly?”
“Have you been somewhere?” she asked rather
insensitively. “I hadn’t noticed.”
I told her about being locked in prison for
stealing the woolly-blue-thingy-with-a-small-tinkly-bell.
She said, “You have such a lot to learn -
Killer would never get caught.”
After that we walked along the canal and I
told her all about prison. She wanted to know every detail -
especially about Princess.
“I think I could be a top model and win lots
of prizes at shows,” she said modestly.
I agreed, but I must admit I was rather
disappointed that she hadn’t missed me even a little. I guess
she must have been very busy and that’s why.
