Helen: Hi, dad it's Helen
Dad: Hello my dear, how are you?
Helen: Studying hard as ever, dad. Can I ask you something as our landlord? Our lease says that we're not allowed animals in the flat. Well, is there a way that we could get around that? You see, Alice found this kitten and everyone really wants to keep her.
Dad: You have a cat in my flat? Oh Helen, why can't you ever obey the rules?
Helen: Oh dad! Please, won't you bend them for me?
Dad: Just this once.
Tim: Kitty, did you hear what I just heard? She called the landlord "dad". What a dark horse Helen is!
