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.
