Easter Sunday Sharing

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.
