A small Eslandolean village. Sunday afternoon. 2nd Sunday of May.

An old woman is sitting alone at a coffee tea table.

There is a knock on the door. "Who can it be now?" she thinks, before it is clear.

In steps Captain Cookie, armed with a bunch of flowers: "Ahoy mom!"

Captain Cookie's Mother: Cookie, fine that you found the time to visit your old mother.

Cookie: Happy Mother's Day, mum.

Mother: Thank you for the fine flowers.
           Sit ye down, have a cup of tea. How is your pirateering going, Cookie?

Cookie (blushes): You mean, my various trade activities?

Mother: I know what I meant to say. I am 64 years old, do you think you can fool me?
               And you forgot to take the pirate hat off. So?

Cookie: It's going ok, mum. I have opened a school for pirates and won a prize in a sandcastle contest.

Mother: Fine, fine. Good boy.

(There's a knock on the door)

Cookie: Someone's knocking at the door. Somebody's ringing a bell.

Mother: Do me a favour, open the door and let 'em in.

In steps Commodore T. Spoon, Captain Cookie's arch enemy.

Mother: Tibby,  fine that you found the time to visit your old mother.

T. Spoon:  Happy Mother's Day, mum.

Cookie (thinking): He bought the same flowers as me. Again. Why on earth?? Just like the cactuses last year .. that are actually doing quite well on the window ledge. And my cactus has grown bigger... hehe.

Mother: Thank you for the fine flowers.
             Sit ye down, have a cup of tea with us.  How is pirate hunting going these days?

Cookie (aside): grrrrr

T. Spoon: Pirates? There are no pirates, mum. The seas are peaceful and quiet. You don't have to be worried.

Mother: I know what I meant to ask. I am 64 years old, do you think you can fool me?
             How is pirate hunting going these days?

T. Spoon: Sorry mum. Everything is going ok. I am heading the academy of pirate hunters now.

Mother:  Fine, fine. Good boy.

T. Spoon: Can I have a piece of cake?

Cookie: You wait until mum offers you cake!

Mother: (to T. Spoon) Yes, Tibby, go, help yourself.  
             (to Cookie) Will you stop bossing your brother around?

Cookie (to T. Spoon): You are teaching those mean pirate hunter guys to catch pirates?  How dare you?

T. Spoon (to Cookie): You are teaching those pirates how to escape us? How dare you?

Mother: Will you two cut it out!  

Cookie & T. Spoon (quietly): Yes, mum.

Mother: And how is your mediation course going?

Cookie (smirking): Tibby didn't come, he was afraid

T. Spoon: You mean liar! You sent me a parrot telling me that the mediation course was off!

Mother: Will you two cut it out!  
        Do you always have to fight?

        We'll do the mediation right here and now:

        So, each of you will now tell the other what he likes about him!

Cookie & T. Spoon (as one): Likes?

Mother: Yes, you heard me. Likes. Go ahead!

Cookie & T. Spoon (mumbeling): Well I kind of like the colour of your coat.

Mother: Was that so difficult?

Cookie & T. Spoon (mumbeling): No.

Mother: And promise me that you don't duel each other again!

T. Spoon: Not even with pistols?

Mother:   No, not even with pistols! Promise?

Cookie & T. Spoon (mumbeling): Yes, mum, we promise.

Mother (sighing): Finally!
             Now, who wants another piece of raspberry cream tart?

Cookie & T. Spoon (shouting): Me, me!

Mother (sighing): Boys...

Wishing all of you - and your mums - a nice weekend!

Someone's knocking at the door. Somebody's ringing a bell. ...

That is from a Paul McCartney song called "Let 'em in".

Very funny conversation! :pir-grin: I already suspected it beforehand, they are brothers. Captain Cookie is the good guy. Commodore T. Spoon is the bad guy because he hunts pirates.

Love the flooring technique. That's a fone house. Love the twist there. 'Even bad men love their mamas."

:pir-grin: I think I left two questions open:  What is "Tibby's" real name? And what is "Cookie's" real name?

Both seem to be nicknames ...
