Watching the Rugby World Cup Final

Me: Have you got a moment?

Nell: Certainly not. We’re watching the Rugby World Cup Final and it’s not looking good for England.

Me: I know that’s why I wondered if you would like a cup of tea.

Nell: A cup of tea? The way this is going I’m going to need a large G and T.

Me: Not at this time of the morning, Nell. I’ll get you some Earl Grey.

Nell: David’s eaten two bacon sandwiches already. I suppose I could manage a scone if pushed.

Me: I’ll ask Poppy. She’s in the kitchen listening to it on the radio with Malcolm. She finds it easier to be doing something so she’ll probably be happy to make you a fresh batch

Nell: Those Spring Boys are certainly putting us through our paces.

Me: Springboks. Did you know they are actually gazelles? If you startle them they have a habit of leaping into the air.

Nell: There is nothing remotely gazelle like about those boys, I can assure you.

Me: They can be very fast when they want to.

Nell: Can’t we all? Have you ever seen a startled corgi?

Me: I can’t say I have.

Nell: Well, trust me those little legs can really move. Myfanwy once outran a whippet.

Me: That’s very hard to believe.

Nell: There was only one crumpet left and she wanted it.

Me: Makes sense.

Nell: Well, that’s it. It’s over.

Me: At least we lost to the Rainbow Nation.

Nell: Yes, one must give credit where it’s due. South Africa thoroughly deserved to win.

Me: And we can be proud of our boys for getting to the final.

Nell: We can.

Me: Do you still want that scone, or have you lost your appetite?

Nell: I’m a Labrador.

Me: Of course. Sorry.
