Cranky

'I'm grumpy,' said the first little owl. 'I didn't get an important thing done because I was doing a fiddly thing to deadline.'
'Is the fiddly thing finished?' said the second little owl.
'Yes, but doing it made me tired and I didn't do any of the important thing I should have done,' said the first little owl.
'Can you work on the important thing tomorrow?' asked the first little owl.
'Yes, but now I'm cranky because the day's finishing and I'm cranky,' said the first little owl.
(Pause.)
'Don't be cranky,' said the dishevelled little owl.
