Ma phoned last night and had a brief chat with B.
B: How are things then? How are the puppies?
Ma: They're fine. They've been out on the lawn all afternoon. They caught a rabbit and have been playing with it.
B: [vision of puppies and rabbit playing hide-and-seek a la 'Bambi'.]
Ma: They ate some of it and I was keeping an eye on them, but then I had to go and do something else, and they brought it in and buried it behind the television.
B: Ah [pause]. I'll pass you over to Ally now.
