Nell: We would like to wish you all a very Happy Easter.
Me: As happy as it can be during this worrying time. Life has changed so much.
Nell: Life is what you make of it. If your biscuits are dry, and there’s no gravy available, just add water.
Me: Do you mean if life gives you lemons make lemonade?
Nell: Certainly not. If life gave me lemons I’d squeeze them onto a nice plate of smoked salmon. If we had any.
Me: I thought we had some.
Nell: I’m afraid it’s been eaten by mistake.
Me: Oh Dave.
Nell: Yes. Malcolm foolishly asked David to arrange the smoked salmon slices on a plate. Apparently the number of slices were uneven so he had to eat a piece to even it up.
Me: And then the smoked salmon greed kicked in. We’ve all been there.
Nell: What are you talking about?
Me: There are certain things where one is never enough. Crisps, for instance, chips, Poppy’s scones and smoked salmon.
Nell: You need to include bacon sandwiches in that list.
Me: True. Did I hear you singing again this morning?
Nell: Yes. Sunday songs are particularly important at Easter. We need to embrace the day.
Me: You’re not going to believe this.
Nell: I just might.
Me: I think a few of the Beefies joined in the singing today.
Nell: Yes. They did. Since I started having Morning Thoughts outside, I’ve noticed the Beefies have been gathering on the roof to listen.
Me: Do they maintain social distance?
Nell: Yes. But that’s not the point. Today we discussed getting through this pandemic together and the importance of unity.
Me: Gosh. You’ll be sharing bacon sandwiches with them next.
Nell: Don’t be silly. Singing? Yes. Bacon? Never.
Me: Of course. Sorry.
