Embrace your inner hippy

Me: Yesterday was amazing, wasn’t it? Look at the way you are rolling around in a meadow of flowers.

Nell: Yes.

Me: Full of the joys of life.

Nell: Yes.

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.
