Stranger things have happened

Me: Look at your adorable sandy face.

Nell: You see this is what you do.

Me: What do you mean?

Nell: You simply can’t stop yourself. How would you feel if I posted a photo of you with sand all over your face?

Me: I wouldn’t mind. I think you look lovely.

Nell: Talking of lovely, Henry has an admirer.

Me: He does?

Nell: A rather beautiful butterfly, although what it is doing flying around at this time of year I do not know.

Me: You don’t think it’s Colin, do you?

Nell: What on earth are you talking about?

Me: Well, he is a caterpillar.

Nell: Colin is on a six month contract with The Chronicle. He is covering the Christmas Market next week.

Me: I didn’t know.

Nell: This butterfly is all unnecessary around Henry. It follows him everywhere, fluttering away.

Me: I think that’s rather wonderful.

Nell: So does Henry. David told me he is chuffed to bits at the attention.

Me: Did you notice Knitwear Wolf’s outfit today?

Nell: Yes. He’s wearing a soft cable knit sweater in dark grey.

Me: How do you know it’s soft?

Nell: It looks soft.

Me: And cuddly?

Nell: I have no idea. Why?

Me: Gladys says Myfanwy’s got a huge crush on him.

Nell: Oh dear. I can’t see that going anywhere.

Me: You never know. Stranger things have happened.

Nell: Don’t I know it.

Me: Look at Gladys and Alejandro and Knitwear Wolf is ever so fond of the Welsh corgi choir.

Nell: ‘Fond of’ says it all though, doesn’t it? I am fond of a scone, or a cup of Earl Grey.

Me: I see what you mean. Dave is fond of bacon sandwiches.

Nell: No. David loves bacon sandwiches. There is a difference.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
