Sunset walking

Nell: It was a lovely day. Lunch at the hotel and a walk on the beach at sunset.

Me: Yes.

Nell: The perfect way to spend Alice and Jonathan’s last day here.

Me: Yes.

Nell: Now, I don’t want any sadness. They are coming back for your birthday at the end of January.

Me: Yes.

Nell: And Chris is arriving from Toronto next week.

Me: Yes, he is.

Nell: I should warn you that David has made your picnic.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: It’s rather small so you may want to stop somewhere on the way to Heathrow.

Me: Did it start out small?

Nell: No. He is still struggling with his tasting skills. Poppy has made him a sign: “Tasting is Tiny Eating.”

Me: I’m not sure tiny eating is part of Dave’s vocabulary.

Nell: Gladys and The Cat have been giving demonstrations but then David finishes up what they leave.

Me: You taught him about a tidy bowl, Nell.

Nell: I shall ignore that remark. Now the hotel are expecting you, I presume?

Me: Yes, we have a family room.

Nell: Set your alarm for the morning as you need to get them to the terminal on time and you won’t have us barking to wake you.

Me: Yes. What a shame.

Nell: You know you would miss our morning barks if they weren’t there.

Me: Would I?

Nell: Yes. That’s why we have recorded them on your iBone as your new ringtone.

Me: Oh great.

Nell: As I always say: “Bark your way into the day.”

Me: I’ll remember that.

Nell: No need for sarcasm.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
