Best friend

Me: I wonder what made you so wise, Nell.

Nell: I prefer to call it common sense.

Me: Whatever it is, we need more of it, if you ask me. Except people don’t. They usually ask you. Why is that do you think?

Nell: I can’t imagine.

Me: Someone applied to be your PA.

Nell: I know.

Me: I would be ever so good at that, you know.

Nell: Would you?

Me: Yes. I could make tea and stuff.

Nell: You could.

Me: And other things too.

Nell: You don’t know what a PA does, do you?

Me: Not really.

Nell: Harriet got the job.

Me: Oh.

Nell: She is bright and sensible.

Me: Yes.

Nell: She will be perfect.

Me: Yes, you are right.

Nell: You are my best friend, though.

Me: I am?

Nell: Of course you are. Where would I be without you? Now, we need Earl Grey and shortbread as we’ve got a lot to discuss.

Me: Yes.

Nell: David has applied to be my Press Secretary.

Me: Well, he’s ever so friendly and awfully keen.

Nell: It’s a dreadful idea. Don’t be so silly.

Me: Yes, sorry.
