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.
Nell: Susan and Malcolm are an excellent team. A sensible seagull and a shy flamingo. An unusual combination but it works.
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.
Nell: So you won’t mind lending me your luxury lounger.
Nell: Get up then.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
