The disapproving puppy

Nell: Why have you put on a photo of those puppies again?

Me: Look at Dave’s face. He looks just like you.

Nell: He does not.

Me: The same disapproving stare.

Nell: Yes. He does that well.

Me: He worships me though Nell.

Nell: He is a puppy.

Me: I know. And so does Harriet. They think I am wonderful.

Nell: Puppies as I said before.

Me: It’s nice to be completely adored. 

Nell: It must be.

Me: And not constantly criticised.

Nell: Who is Dave looking at?

Me: Me of course.

Nell: I see.

Me: Why?

Nell: He’s got that disapproving stare just right.

Me: I know. Just like you.

Nell: Yes.

Me: Oh, I see. Do you think puppies can be disapproving?

Nell: The stare says it all really.
