Me: I know Nell.
Nell: No walks for a whole week.
Me: I know.
Nell: I tried to have some quiet in the studio.
Nell: Then everybody joined me.
Me: They were worried about you.
Nell: They started fighting and tearing up boxes.
Me: I can see.
Nell: I have a sprained shoulder and I need quiet.
Me: I’ll tell them to go Nell.
Nell: They can stay for a little.
Nell: They mean well.
Nell: They are only young.
Nell: Pick up the mess before you go. What will people think.
Me: It wasn’t my fault.
Nell: There’s a dustpan and brush in the utility.
Me: Ok. Are you sure you don’t want me to stay and comfort you?
Nell: Close the door quietly please. The puppies are resting.
