Obviously, if your special Ascot friend had gone to the races that day, you wouldn't have worried about being in the Royal Enclosure. But Her Majesty's Representative at the Course has introduced a discriminatory ruling about hippos and I'm too striking to sneak in unobserved. How unfair is that?
One is not amused!
buttons replies...hippolyta - that's terrible! i didn't know that h.m. was hippoist! i am shocked!sharon - which (or what) one?
Buttons - ask Brian or David to explain.But surely she might have made an exception in your case, Hippolyta?
Well, I would have thought so, too, SharonM. After all, I do add a touch of glamour to any event. And I honestly don't think it's my fault that a couple of racehorses bolted when they saw me on the last occasion I managed to get in to the course. (But don't worry, the day wasn't wasted. Buttons and I had a cosy evening in the garden afterwards)
I wonder if David & Brian will be Best Men at the wedding, or if that honour will fall to Buttons Hippo.
I'm sorry to say that Hippolyta and I have had a Little Misunderstanding which means that if there is a wedding it seems very unlikely that I will even be asked to the Reception ...
buttons replies...oh, dear! what now?
Just a silly misunderstanding - apparently a little joke I played on Hippolyta meant that she didn't go with you to Greece. So she says that it's all my fault that she missed out this year. Unfair, but that's hippo-esses for you.
buttons replies...next year, coz, we must try and sort this our more efficiently: it is way too stressful!
