Shenanigans

Me: What is going on?

Nell: We decided to have a game of Shenanigans with Kev and, as usual, David took it too far.

Me: What is Shenanigans? It looks fun.

Nell: It’s a labrador game. We all play it.

Me: How does it work?

Nell: You take it in turns. It involves a lot of movement and weaving in and out. Someone is It and then passes it on.

Me: You’ve never played it with me.

Nell: We play it with you all the time.

Me: I didn’t know.

Nell: Yes, that’s half the fun.

Me: Does Kev know?

Nell: Of course, he does. He is an excellent player.

Me: Why didn’t you tell me?

Nell: You are at your best when you don’t know. Less worried.

Me: Could we play now?

Nell: No, we are exhausted.

Me: Please, Nell. I want to play.

Nell: Patience is a virtue, we labs know this is true. Often found in dogs, but seldom found in you.

Me: Well, that’s not true.

Nell: You won’t mind waiting then.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
