Flapping ears

Nell: Have you got a theme going on?

Me: What do you mean?

Nell: Sandy faces yesterday and flapping ears today.

Me: I can’t resist the puppies’ happy ears.

Nell: They are going to be two in June you know. Not puppies anymore.

Me: Yes. It’s hard to believe.

Nell: We are seriously considering Morris Dancing, by the way.

Me: I beg your pardon.

Nell: David discussed it with Tony as he used to be a Morris Dancer before he sang sea shanties.

Me: And became a postman.

Nell: One does not rule out the other. Tony is multitalented.

Me: Indeed. Who is going to dance?

Nell: Everyone.

Me: Not Mutley?

Nell: He is prepared to wear bells on his ankles.

Me: But Malcolm is shy.

Nell: Malcolm is surprisingly keen. He is even wondering about us performing at the wedding.

Me: What wedding?

Nell: Malcolm and Susan’s wedding in July. Do keep up.

Me: I didn’t know.

Nell: It says the Flamingo/Seagull Wedding on the calendar. How many flamingos do you know?

Me: Quite a few actually if I am honest and that’s not something I ever thought I would say.

Nell: Not shy ones marrying quiet seagulls.

Me: It doesn’t say that on the calendar.

Nell: Anyway, Count Bingo is hosting the wedding and Poppy is catering.

Me: I can’t wait. Where are my bells?

Nell: You definitely won’t be dancing. I’ve told you many times that you are best observing and writing.

Me: Yes.

Nell: Please tell me David didn’t just walk past in a crown of feathers wearing a large beak and carrying Gladys in my handbag dressed as a yellow chick?

Me: It’s just one of their ideas for the Easter parade.

Nell: I need a cup of Earl Grey and a face flannel.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
