Me: The puppies just outmanoeuvred me.

Nell: They will be 3 this month. You’re going to have to start calling them something else.

Me: They will always me the puppies to me.

Nell: I know they will. Anyway, what did they do?

Me: I was outside on my lounger. You know the one that Kev has made comfortable for me with a duvet and pillow?

Nell: Yes. Your luxury lounger. It looks very comfortable.

Me: And Harriet was on the lounger next to me.

Nell: What’s wrong with that?

Me: Nothing, but it’s normally Dave’s lounger.

Nell: Yes. David does like to lie on there.

Me: So Dave goes and sits on top of me.

Nell: David just likes to be close to you.

Me: He is really heavy though.

Nell: He probably doesn’t realise.

Me: Yes, he does because after a while I have to get up.

Nell: I see.

Me: And then Harriet gets on my lounger and his lounger is free.

Nell: Nice team work.

Me: You could call it that.

Nell: We were discussing team work at Morning Thoughts and how much more can be achieved together. They obviously listened.

Me: But I lost my lounger.

Nell: You soon got it back again.

Me: True.

Nell: Susan and Malcolm are an excellent team. A sensible seagull and a shy flamingo. An unusual combination but it works.

Me: Yes.

Nell: Gladys and Alejandro shouldn’t work but they do. A Pomeranian and an alpaca.

Me: Some teams are just meant to be together.

Nell: Henry and Horst. Dave and Harriet. Princess and Our Penguin.

Me: We make a good team, don’t we?

Nell: You and Me. Always.

Me: Yes.

Nell: So you won’t mind lending me your luxury lounger.

Me: Now?

Nell: Get up then.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
