Nell: You never cease to disappoint me.
Nell: I hear you are flying to Berlin.
Me: Yes, on Tuesday to visit Alice.
Nell: Am I going with you?
Me: No. I am afraid they don’t take dogs on planes.
Nell: That isn’t strictly true now is it?
Me: Well, you would have to be drugged and put in a crate.
Nell: I wouldn’t like that.
Me: That’s what I thought.
Nell: Have you ever driven to Berlin?
Me: Yes, I have but not this time as I am going alone.
Nell: You wouldn’t be alone if I was with you.
