Happy Valentine’s Day

Me: Happy Valentine’s Day.

Nell: I’m sticking my tongue out.

Me: I know but you still look beautiful.

Nell: Where is your red hat?

Me: Can I put it on later, please?

Nell: Kev is wearing his.

Me: He used to be an actor. He loves hats.

Nell: The big news is that Malcolm has received two Valentine cards.

Me: No?

Nell: One is from Susan but the other one is anonymous.

Me: How exciting.

Nell: There is a Mallard from Modbury who comes into the cafe every day for one of Malcolm’s macarons so she seems most likely.

Me: What about Timothy?

Nell: Timothy isn’t interested in Malcolm.

Me: No. Did he get any Valentine’s cards?

Nell: Not yet, but there is still time.

Me: Have you heard from Charlie, by the way?

Nell: Nothing at all.

Me: That’s odd because there is a rather handsome German Shepherd at the front door.

Nell: Very funny.

Me: Holding a bouquet of red roses.

Nell: And carrying Gladys in my handbag, I expect.

Me: Actually Gladys and the others are watching from the kitchen. Just go and see.

Nell: It’s Charlie. My Charlie. You all knew.

Me: Of course we did and we are not sorry at all.
