Badger and Magpie occasionally meet for coffee . . .
Magpie: i once had a cell phone
Badger: was it shiny?
Magpie: of course it was shiny!
Badger: where’d you find it?
Magpie: on the seawall
Badger: did you call anyone?
Magpie: yes, yes i did
Badger: and what did they say?
Magpie: she said, “Is that you Frank?”
Badger: and did you reply?
Magpie: i did, i did! i said, “Hola!”
Badger: oh! how exciting! and then what happened?
Magpie: she said, “I thought I told you never to call me again!” and she hung up.
Badger: poor Frank
Magpie: Frank must have been a real loser
Badger: you know what?
Magpie: what Badger?
Badger: I once found an egg timer in a pile of leaves
Magpie: did it work?
Badger: i never tried it, i don’t really care for eggs
it began to rain, the animals in the street put up their umbrellas and hurried for cover, so Magpie and Badger decided to have another cup of coffee . . .
