Visiting Berlin

Nell: You never cease to disappoint me.

Me: Why?

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.

Me: Sorry.
