It’s not fair

Nell: Would you mind dealing with David please?

Me: Why?

Nell: He is sulking in the living room.

Me: What’s happened?

Nell: Harriet is going up to London for a few days and he isn’t invited.

Me: She is going to see Sally, isn’t she?

Nell: Yes. They planned it ages ago. Shopping, dinner and a musical.

Me: Dave would love that.

Nell: I know.

Me: And Sally is his girlfriend.

Nell: I am aware.

Me: I’m on Dave’s side. It’s not fair.

Nell: Good grief. They just want to have a girly few days.

Me: But Harriet isn’t actually very girly.

Nell: Just go and talk to David, please. He refused a second boiled egg and left half of his hot buttered toast.

Me: Gosh.

Nell: Do you think I should arrange an Oyster cart for Harriet?

Me: Don’t you mean an Oyster card for public transport?

Nell: No. I mean an Oyster cart. It is shaped like a shell with comfortable seats and usually pulled by Weimaraners. Great fun.

Me: I’ve never seen one but I think it might struggle in the London traffic.

Nell: Yes. A travel card might be best and if she needs to be somewhere quickly she can always get a Tuba.

Me: I don’t think playing a musical instrument is going to help her.

Nell: What are you talking about? Tuba is a taxi service. Everyone has the App. Do keep up.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
