Me: Happy Halloween. I hope I didn’t wake you with my coffin.
Nell: What are you doing downstairs and what are you both wearing?
Me: Dave and I took a quick selfie.
Nell: Those aren’t the hats we chose for you.
Me: Dave wanted feathers.
Nell: Good grief.
Me: Anyway, what do you say when a skeleton comes to dinner?
Nell: I don’t know.
Me: Bone appetit.
Nell: That’s dreadful.
Me: I knew you wouldn’t find it humerus.
Nell: Have you got this out of your system now? Only I have a lot to do before the opening and Harriet is waiting.
Me: Just trying to creep it real.
Nell: Poppy, Malcolm and The Cat are already at the cafe making the final preparations.
Me: Gourd for them.
Nell: You need to be quiet.
Me: You mean don’t spook unless I’m spooken to?
Nell: I’m leaving for the cafe soon with David and the dancers. I expect you to be wearing your costume when we start the live link this afternoon.
Me: Yes. Let’s get this party startled.
Nell: In the meantime please get some rest. Mutley has agreed to sit with you for a while. I really have to go.
Me: Save me some cake and a sand witch.
Nell: Back to bed right now.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
