Tony’s back

Me: Look at those two. They are so pleased to see each other again.

Nell: Yes.

Me: Dave has been counting the days until Tony gets back from his holiday.

Nell: Yes, David marked it on his calendar and crossed each day off. Part of his Organisational Skills.

Me: I’m impressed.

Nell: They have a lot in common. Tony sings you know.

Me: I did know. Sea shanties.

Nell: David loves singing and I think he is hoping to join Tony’s group.

Me: I’m not sure Dave is quite up to it, Nell. I mean they are proper singers. They perform in public. They’ve even been on television.

Nell: David is a quick learner. Maybe Tony can teach him.

Me: I used to sing in the school choir and Torquay Operatic Society.

Nell: No, you can’t join Tony’s group.

Me: What if you form your own group? I could be your manager.

Nell: I don’t believe this.

Me: You can sing, Nell. I’ve heard you.

Nell: I have a pleasant contralto voice that’s true. Harriet is more of a soprano.

Me: Harriet sounds like a seagull.

Nell: Now that is unkind and you know perfectly well it’s her Are We Nearly At The Beach voice.

Me: Yes, I know.

Nell: Mutley can’t hear so don’t suggest him.

Me: What about Poppy?

Nell: I suppose we might persuade her to play her saxophone.

Me: There you are then.

Nell: No, we aren’t. Let’s just start with David having singing lessons with Tony. If he has the time.

Me: Ok.

Nell: Honestly, you will be entering us for Britain’s Got Talent next.

Me: Now that’s an idea but it’s already started.

Nell: Enough.

Me: Yes, sorry.
