Be careful David

Nell: So, I had a long chat with David before they left. He seemed fine.

Me: Good.

Nell: They are taking the Bulldog Boys’ black limousine. Reggie will drive with David next to him and Mutley and Ronnie in the back.

Me: I wish Dave was in the back.

Nell: You know David’s job is to keep a lookout when the others are inside and to sound the horn if he notices anything dodgy. He can’t do that from the back.

Me: He was wearing a black hat, sunglasses and a stripy tie when I saw him.

Nell: Yes. Mutley said that would be fine.

Me: Where are they meeting?

Nell: This is the good part. Starbarks has a branch in Plymouth and they are meeting there.

Me: I hope they get Dave a muffin and a cappuccino. It’s his favourite. Will John the Doberman be serving?

Nell: No, it will be his brother Junior. But Junior is a friend of ours if you get my drift.

Me: No, he isn’t. I’ve never met him.

Nell: Of ours, not mine.

Me: If he’s a friend of ours then he is definitely a friend of yours.

Nell: It’s Mafia speak for being part of The Firm. If someone is introduced as a friend of ours then they are one of us, if someone is only a friend of mine then they are an outsider.

Me: Well, that’s a bit mean.

Nell: I give up.

Me: Dave knows to look out for violin cases, doesn’t he?

Nell: Good grief. It’s Plymouth 2018 not 1920’s Chicago. Just get us some Earl Grey and calm down.

Me: Ok. Sorry.
