Everyone makes mistakes

Me: How fabulous. Dave looks magnificent.

Nell: Yes, he does.

Me: So he decided on David Martin not Dave?

Nell: We felt David was more appropriate for an author. More weighty.

Me: He’s going to be weighty if he keep eating things by mistake.

Nell: He is working on that. He and Alejandro have gone surfing with Gladys and the girls. It’s all part of the new exercise regime.

Me: What girls? Not the Welsh corgi choir?

Nell: Certainly not. Corgis don’t surf. Everyone knows that. They sail, but they never surf.

Me: Then who?

Nell: The Whippets Institute surf team of course. Do keep up.

Me: Gladys isn’t a whippet. She’s a Pomeranian.

Nell: You don’t have to be a whippet to surf. Everyone does it around here.

Me: Apart from the corgis.

Nell: Obviously.

Me: How were the reviews by the way?

Nell: Positive in the main. They questioned the accidental eating of a whole roast chicken.

Me: That’s easily done, so I have been told.

Nell: Quite. Once you’ve eaten one leg you have to eat the other and so on. It’s all about the symmetry.

Me: And greed.

Nell: David argues that greed isn’t the driving force.

Me: Really? I mean he’s a Labrador.

Nell: And your point is?

Me: Well, you Labradors are renowned for your appetite.

Nell: We are good eaters. I call it Supportive Eating. We like to show our appreciation.

Me: But you seem to forget you’ve eaten almost immediately after you’ve finished.

Nell: We simply move on. Why dwell on the past?

Me: That’s one way of looking at it. Although Dave takes it to a new level.

Nell: What do you mean?

Me: He’s almost finished before he thinks about it at all.

Nell: Everyone makes mistakes.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
