Me: Do you think you deserve the name “Alfred the Great”?
Alfred: I don’t know if I deserve it because all I did was uphold the honour of my kingdom.
Me: That’s very modest of you. How long did it take you to design the burhs?
Alfred: Well I’m not quite sure how long it took. You lose track of time when you’ve been dead 1013 years.
Me: Poor you. How did you feel after the Battle of Eddington?
Alfred: I felt exhilarated.
Me: Is the story about the cakes true?
Alfred: Well I don’t know. I forgot well I was dead.
Me: Thank you very much Alfred you can go back to your coffin now
Alfred: Thank you very much.
