Me: Yesterday was amazing, wasn’t it? Look at the way you are rolling around in a meadow of flowers.
Me: Full of the joys of life.
Me: Basking in the sunshine, drinking in the scenery.
Nell: The drinking started later, I believe.
Me: Savouring the culinary delights.
Nell: We went to the beach and had a cream tea. Get a grip.
Me: I know. But it was lovely, wasn’t it?
Nell: Why did you have to wear a circlet of flowers in your hair all day?
Me: I was celebrating the warm weather. Jaime wore one.
Nell: I know. Jaime is an actor.
Me: She wasn’t acting yesterday, though, she was just having fun.
Nell: You hadn’t even been drinking, then.
Me: I know. Don’t be so stuffy. Sometimes you just need to let your hair down. Go wild. Embrace your inner hippy.
Nell: Good grief.
Me: Actually, Nell, rolling around in the meadow is exactly the same thing. You were just enjoying life.
Nell: I was, but let’s be clear. I do not have an inner hippy and I will not be embracing it, or wearing a circlet of flowers any time soon.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
