Me: Just look at the two of them.
Nell: David and Tony are the best of friends.
Me: They are.
Nell: I’m glad he told us he was going on sick leave for two weeks.
Me: Yes. David would have been waiting for him every day otherwise.
Nell: Yes. He knows that Tony has a bad knee. He has been trying very hard not to jump but I’m afraid his emotions take over when he sees him.
Me: Let’s hope they can fix it.
Nell: They will. Now, you did well at the dentist yesterday. We were proud of you.
Me: I was so worried but I had no need to be.
Nell: Yes. That’s why we need to discuss Worrying for Nothing.
Me: Do we?
Nell: Yes. Now think of all the time you wasted worrying.
Me: It wasn’t as long as usual because you didn’t remind me until the last minute.
Nell: I know. There was a reason for that. You need to stop imagining what if and just deal with what is. There is no point in worrying about something that might never happen. It doesn’t help you, or anyone.
Me: You are right.
Nell: Think of all the extra time you would have if you stopped worrying.
Me: I hope the Replacement Tonys can deal with Dave. Only you know how he rushes out to check on them. It’s a worry.
Nell: I might as well be talking to myself.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
