Where are all the bandanas coming from?

Me: Little Marvin really is impossibly cute. He must be so excited that Chris will be back in Toronto tomorrow.

Nell: Yes, I’m sure he is, but look at the photos.

Me: Shannon looks so proud and happy.

Nell: Yes, she does. But what else?

Me: It’s Rhubarb. She must be back in Toronto. I’m so glad Little Marvin has a friend.

Nell: Yes. But what are they both wearing?

Me: Bandanas. They suit them don’t they? Look at their lovely smiles.

Nell: Yes, but why is everyone wearing bandanas?

Me: Not everyone, Nell.

Nell: Alejandro was wearing one at Morning Thoughts.

Me: I think he has a bit of a sore throat.

Nell: Malcolm is even wearing one.

Me: Malcolm? Now, that is surprising. He’s not really a bandana wearing kind of bird. It wasn’t sequinned, was it?

Nell: No. it was plain white. Poppy is very strict about hygiene in the kitchen. But that’s not the point.

Me: I think Mutley’s bandana is very flattering. He has something of the ageing cowboy about him.

Nell: Where are all these bandanas coming from?

Me: I have no idea but Tony says he is delivering them everywhere. They are even in Toronto.

Nell: Don’t be silly. Tony doesn’t deliver to Toronto. He’s got enough to do delivering post around here.

Me: I didn’t mean that.

Nell: Talking of Toronto when is Chris leaving?

Me: Early evening. I wish he didn’t live so far away.

Nell: Well, he does and he is happy in Toronto. So you and I are going to take him to the station later and smile as we wave goodbye.

Me: Yes.

Nell: Because that’s what we do when we love someone, even if it means we have to let them go.

Me: You are right. Sorry.
