Me: Dave is giving me a disapproving stare.
Nell: Yes. You stopped him from destroying his blanket.
Me: He shouldn’t be doing that.
Nell: It’s a comfort thing.
Me: But he drags it everywhere, Nell.
Nell: You wouldn’t complain if it was a teddy bear.
Me: No. I probably wouldn’t.
Nell: Or an octopus.
Me: I’m not sure why you chose an octopus just then.
Nell: The last toy he destroyed was an octopus type toy. It had long legs.
Me: Oh yes. I remember.
Nell: Anyway, a blanket takes longer. Be thankful.
Me: True. But he dragged it through the water bowls and there was water everywhere.
Nell: There isn’t any water on the floor now.
Me: No. Because it’s all on the blanket.
Nell: So he mopped up after himself. I don’t blame him for giving you a stare.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
