"Hello, Mrs. Premise!"
"Oh, hello, Mrs. Conclusion! Busy day?"
"Busy? I just spent four hours burying the cat."
"Four hours to bury a cat!?"
"Yes, he wouldn't keep still: wrigglin' about, 'owlin'..."
"Oh, it's not dead then."
"Oh no, no, but it's not at all a well cat, and as we're goin' away
for a fortnight I thought I'd better bury it just to be on the safe side."
"Quite right. You don't want to come back from Sorrento to a dead
cat, do you?"
