Waiting for Canadians

Me: What are you all waiting for?

Nell: Canadians.

Me: Canadians don’t just turn up, you know.

Nell: Yes, they do.

Me: What do you mean?

Nell: Rhu visited us for tea a few days ago and Shel and Jaime are arriving today. That’s three already.

Me: I suppose so.

Nell: And then Chris is coming over from Toronto in a couple of weeks.

Me: Chris isn’t Canadian.

Nell: Shannon is. Chris lives there. And we mustn’t forget Michael Bouvier the singer. He gets everywhere.

Me: You mean Bublé.

Nell: I do not. Now, Poppy is checking if we’ve got any Maple Syrup.

Me: I think they want Sticky Toffee Pudding.

Nell: You can’t have that for breakfast.

Me: They won’t be here until lunchtime.

Nell: So why are we waiting here in the cold and rain then?

Me: I have no idea.

Nell: Honestly, as if I don’t have better things to do. You shouldn’t be outside either with your nasty sore throat.

Me: Yes, it’s really chilly out here. At least Knitwear Wolf is appropriately dressed for once.

Nell: Yes, although those leg warmers are a little excessive. It appeared to be herding sheep this morning and was wearing a tweed cap which I find rather worrying.

Me: Did you wave?

Nell: Certainly not. It doesn’t need encouraging.

Me: There is no harm in being friendly.

Nell: I’m beginning to think Knitwear Wolf might be a Weather Wolf.

Me: A Weather Wolf?

Nell: Yes. But not a very good one.

Me: Why?

Nell: It obviously knew storms were coming but it got its days wrong.

Me: I didn’t know Weather Wolves existed.

Nell: You have Weather forecasters.

Me: Do you have Weather Dogs then?

Nell: Of course we do. Carol the Collie. Do keep up.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
