Partying until Dawn

Me: What is wrong with Dave? He seems ever so tired.

Nell: Don’t get me started.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: Partying with Poppy until dawn.

Me: Oh no.

Nell: Dancing in the garden.

Me: Gosh!

Nell: Drinking from the plant pots.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: And rapping with the farm dogs.

Me: What?

Nell: Oh yes. Goodness only knows what the repercussions will be.

Me: He is young, though, Nell, and it’s a Bank Holiday.

Nell: What’s Poppy’s excuse then? She will be 5 next month.

Me: Poppy is a rebel.

Nell: Well, she’s a rebel without a sword. Because I’ve hidden it.

Me: She won’t like that.

Nell: And David is grounded until further notice. When he finally came to bed he was wearing the farmer’s cap. How am I going to explain that?

Me: Where is Harriet?

Nell: She and Mutley are going through the papers. We need to know what they’ve said.

Me: They were only partying, Nell. Surely that’s not newsworthy.

Nell: No, silly, about the campaign. Keep up!

Me: Yes, Of course. Sorry.
