Me: Why are you looking at me like that?
Nell: I’m just keeping an eye on you.
Me: I’m fine. Chris will be back soon.
Nell: Yes. Try not to track his flight all day though.
Me: I’ll try but I can’t make any promises. By the way, I think I saw Henry in the upstairs facilities.
Nell: Are you talking about the family bathroom?
Nell: I wonder how he got there? It’s quite a journey for a woodlouse.
Me: Maybe he rode on his brother Horst’s back? I mean Horst is twice his size at least and Gladys rides on Alejandro.
Nell: I worry about you sometimes. You cannot compare a black Pomeranian riding an alpaca to a woodlouse riding a woodlouse. It doesn’t make sense.
Me: No. It doesn’t.
Nell: Horst may be large but he is still a woodlouse. He can’t just gallop upstairs.
Me: Yes. I wish Alejandro and Dave would stop doing that.
Nell: I agree. It’s loud and it’s dangerous.
Me: Alpacas weren’t meant to go upstairs.
Nell: I know but David challenged him to a Full House Runaround With Tucked In Tail.
Me: Which is actually Harriet’s speciality.
Nell: Yes. Harriet is the current champion. She can stop and turn in an instant.
Me: Maybe it isn’t Henry then.
Nell: If it is Henry then he probably asked David to take him upstairs. You know how David dotes on him.
Me: A woodlouse is an odd friend for a Labrador.
Nell: David finds him fascinating. He says he could watch Henry for hours.
Me: I wonder if Dave gave it to him then?
Me: I mean it’s not something you see every day.
Nell: Please tell me Henry wasn’t wearing a bandana?
Me: Only a very small one. Sorry.
