We will get there together

Me: Wasn’t it lovely to see Tony again?

Nell: Yes, the puppies didn’t maintain social distancing of course. As soon as they heard his van they rushed to the gate.

Me: I know but they were so pleased to see him.

Nell: I noticed a Beefy but it didn’t appear to be carrying a camera.

Me: Good.

Nell: One can’t be too careful. Ouch. You just pinched me. Don’t do that.

Me: Pinch, punch first of the month. White rabbits and no returns.

Nell: I worry about you sometimes.

Me: It’s just an old custom. I think it means I’m going to be lucky.

Nell: Well, your book is being published at the end of this month so paws crossed.

Me: I had so many plans, Nell. I wanted to celebrate with people. We’ve been on this journey together and I so wanted to meet them and shake their hands.

Nell: You will. Just not now. Life is on hold at the moment. It is the only way to keep everyone safe.

Me: Yes, you are right.

Nell: Sometimes waiting can make things even better. As I explained to David at Morning Thoughts, the anticipation of bacon is almost as good as the taste.

Me: No, it isn’t.

Nell: He said there was only so much anticipating an animal could be expected to do and did I think he might have a second boiled egg because the first hardly touched the sides.

Me: One egg is never enough.

Nell: What I am trying to say is that the journey is turning out to be a little longer and slightly more complicated than we were expecting but we will still get there in the end.

Me: Yes, we will.

Nell: We are in this together. All of us.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
