Our Time

Nell: We need to have a conversation.

Me: I know Nell. People have been asking after you.

Nell: Not about me. About those puppies.

Me: Dave and Harriet?

Nell: I call him David.

Me: So do I on occasions.

Nell: Have you seen your favourite chair?

Me: I know. They destroyed it but they didn’t mean it.

Nell: Oh well that’s ok then.

Me: Yes.

Nell: As for their manners. Words fail me.

Me: They are puppies. All puppies are wild.

Nell: David licked my bowl.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: Uninvited.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: Harriet licked my face.

Me: Now that’s sweet.

Nell: Also uninvited.

Me: Do you want me to give them back?
Nell: Don’t be ridiculous. They are family.

Me: You are warming to them.

Nell: I wouldn’t say that.

Me: I knew it. You were pleased to see them this morning.

Nell: It was morning. I’m pleased to see you in the morning and early evening too of course.

Me: I thought you were always pleased to see me.

Nell: Breakfast and Dinner. Our time.

Me: Actually you are especially nice to me then.

Nell: This is too easy.
