Nell: I’m glad to see little Ollie is wearing his seatbelt.
Me: Yes. Tony says he is a bit of a scallywag. I can’t wait to meet him.
Nell: Once he has had all his inoculations he will be able to visit us.
Me: What was Poppy whispering to you and Dave by the way?
Nell: If she was whispering, and I am not saying she was, then it would have been confidential and none of your business.
Me: Oh, I just wondered.
Nell: If you must know she was asking what Ecuardorians usually eat for breakfast?
Nell: Perhaps because we have an Ecuardorian alpaca asleep in a hammock in the garden and he’s going to be hungry when he wakes up.
Me: Oh yes. I forgot. What do they eat?
Nell: Café con humitas will do for now. Although a few empanadas de verde would probably be welcomed but I’m not sure we have any green plantain.
Me: Gosh. I was thinking boiled eggs and soldiers.
Nell: In Ecuador? David suggested bacon sandwiches but then he always does.
Me: It’s so lovely to have Gladys home again. Everyone was dancing.
Nell: Where did those chihuahuas come from? I didn’t invite them.
Me: I have no idea but I loved the hats.
Nell: David and Alejandro are going surfing later.
Me: Do alpacas surf?
Nell: I don’t see why not, although paddle boarding might be a better idea.
Me: Alejandro is awfully sweet with his Ecuadorian accent.
Nell: Harriet offered to teach him English but Gladys gave her a hard stare.
Me: Gladys is in no position to be jealous with three suitors. Although I can’t see Count Bingo crying into his cornflakes for long.
Nell: Count Bingo doesn’t eat cornflakes. He likes muesli with fresh berries.
Me: Of course. Sorry.
