Everyone loves Sally

Me: Isn’t Sally lovely?

Nell: Yes. Charlie was right. She is a sweet natured retriever. A little shy perhaps but I prefer that in a young animal.

Me: Did you see Dave’s face when Charlie introduced her?

Nell: I did. David was transfixed.

Me: He fell over his bowl and then Sally fell over The Cat. What was The Cat doing there, by the way?

Nell: Collecting for a raffle. A pitiful excuse to snoop if you ask me. Anyway, I’m not sure The Cat likes Sally. It was giving her one of its hard stares.

Me: I think Sally is a little too quiet for The Cat. Talking of quiet. I’ve never seen Dave so tongue tied. It was sweet.

Nell: Putting four sugars in Sally’s tea was certainly far too sweet. He just didn’t stop spooning them in.

Me: She didn’t mind.

Nell: I don’t know how she drank it.

Me: I expect she was being polite.

Nell: Well, thank goodness Gladys and Rita were at their Zumba class.

Me: Yes. They can be a bit loud.

Nell: It’s all the singing and dancing I struggle with. Some of us don’t want to be Bouncy, or whatever her name is.

Me: Do you mean Beyoncé?

Nell: Probably. Why are you smiling?

Me: It’s just the thought of you being Beyoncé.

Nell: Shirley Bassett says I have an exceptional voice and she should know. Have you heard her sing “Diamonds are for Ever”?

Me: Yes. Sorry.
