A letter to Queen Elizabeth II…
It is with regret that I write to inform you of accidental damage to your property, to be specific, one of this year’s cygnets. The unfortunate incident occurred at the end of walkies, whereupon spying the aforementioned cygnet minding its own business in the reeds, my dog, also known as the furry menace, took off in hot pursuit.
Despite my frantic calls for her to ‘heel’, the menace grasped the cygnet firmly by the leg and began to ‘fetch it’ towards me. Fortunately your cygnet had the element of surprise up its feathers, landing pup an almighty nip and wallop on the nose!
Letting out a yelp, thus freeing the cygnet, the furry nuisance beat a hasty retreat. It is fair to say that the tussle ended in a 1:1 draw. Should the cygnet require medical attention, please get in touch and we will take care of it.
My sincere apologies and love to the corgis.
Your humble, frazzled servant
…. and then I woke up. The dog versus cygnet incident was all too real, but the written apology to her Majesty… just a dream!
