You will be fine

Me: Harriet has got her concerned face on.

Nell: Yes.

Me: I wonder what Dave has done now.

Nell: David has done nothing wrong for a pleasant change. He was marvellous several times yesterday.

Me: I hope Harriet hasn’t had a row with Jim.

Nell: No. Harriet and Jim are fine. He was so impressed with Malcolm’s poncho that she is knitting him a winter scarf for when he is out in the fields.

Me: I wonder what’s troubling her then.

Nell: Actually, she is worried about you.

Me: Me?

Nell: Now, I know you don’t always live in the real world.

Me: That’s a bit harsh, Nell.

Nell: You get carried away and you forget things.

Me: I do?

Nell: So, I encourage you to write them down on the whiteboard, or the calendar.

Me: Yes.

Nell: I monitor the whiteboard and Harriet monitors the calendar.

Me: That’s kind of you.

Nell: And that’s why Harriet knows you are going to the dentist this morning.

Me: I am?

Nell: Yes.

Me: I don’t like the dentist.

Nell: We know. Nobody does. Kev has agreed to take you and Poppy will make you a lovely lunch on your return.

Me: I may not be able to eat, Nell, so it had better be soup.

Nell: You will be fine. It’s always the bit before that’s the worst. The apprehension.

Me: Except for dentists.

Nell: Enough doom and gloom. David has prepared an encouraging song and Harriet is offering extra cuddles. You will be fine.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
