David overdoes it again

Nell: David overdid it again.

Me: I know. He was so pleased to see Chris and Shannon.

Nell: But you can’t just stand on people. Especially after they’ve been on a long flight.

Me: Harriet went crazy when she saw Chris.

Nell: Yes. She has never forgotten the time when she was a little puppy and he cared for her.

Me: I know. I thought she would never stop kissing him.

Nell: I do think David is going to have to learn a little restraint.

Me: My darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy. He wears his heart on his sleeve.

Nell: What on earth are you talking about?David doesn’t have sleeves. He’s not wearing his winter cardigan at the moment.

Me: It’s just a saying.

Nell: Talking of cardigans, Knitwear Wolf brought one for the penguin.

Me: He’s a kind wolf.

Nell: Yes. Since it started wearing sunglasses it’s stopped filming.

Me: Interesting.

Nell: You’ve forgotten why, haven’t you?

Me: Yes.

Nell: Sunglasses protect us from being hypnotised by Sven Gully. Remember?

Me: I thought it was a fashion statement.

Nell: Do try and keep up. I’m pleased to say Malcolm is now completely back to normal.

Me: I’m so relieved.

Nell: Preparations are well under way for our second Christmas dinner. The turkey is going into the oven soon.

Me: What about Timothy?

Nell: He’s gone on an artist’s retreat.

Me: Have we got any Christmas crackers?

Nell: I’m not sure, but Gladys will be performing a contemporary Christmas dance and The Cat has made sequinned hats for everyone.

Me: It all sounds wonderful.

Nell: You’re very happy to have all your loved ones here, aren’t you?

Me: Happier than I can say.

Nell: I think you can say. It’s what you do best.

Me: Yes, it is. Sorry.
