Me: Oh good, Dave’s antlers have arrived.

Nell: I beg your pardon?

Me: It’s about time. I’ve ordered some for Harriet too.

Nell: Are you completely insane?

Me: No, I asked and apparently it’s good for them and will keep them busy.

Nell: What about the rest of us? David wearing a pair of antlers. I’m moving out.

Me: No, they are to chew on.

Nell: You had me worried for a moment. 

Me: How could you even think that Nell? I’m not that silly.

Nell: I think you will find you are. I’ve been forced to wear the odd hat as you well know.

Me: They were just hats.

Nell: I’ve heard you remark on David’s resemblance to a wild animal.

Me: I just said he is so big when he sits at the top of the stairs he looks like a black lion surveying his kingdom.

Nell: A black lion.

Me: Yes.

Nell: David.

Me: Yes. But they don’t have antlers. If I’d bought him a mane you might have a point. A black mane would suit him.

Nell: I rest my case.
