Nell: What on earth is David doing now?

Me: He is learning to play backgammon with Kev.

Nell: Excuse me?

Me: He wanted to learn.

Nell: I do worry about you sometimes.

Me: You should learn too. Then you and Dave could play together.

Nell: Absolutely ridiculous.

Me: I know. Just joking.

Nell: I prefer chess.

Me: What?

Nell: Harriet loves Scrabble. She has an excellent vocabulary already.

Me: Come on.

Nell: The Mutt likes a game of poker.

Me: And Poppy?

Nell: Poppy is excellent at bridge. She is teaching Dave and Harriet as Mutley isn’t keen and we need four.

Me: I used to know how to play. You never asked me.

Nell: We are dogs. You do know that don’t you?

Me: Yes.

Nell: Just checking.

Me: Sorry.
