Me: Honestly those two really are the best of friends.
Nell: Yes, David has been counting the days. He misses Tony so much.
Me: Everyone needs a holiday. Especially all the key workers like Tony who’ve kept us all going.
Nell: You don’t need to tell me that. I just wish Princess wouldn’t clap everyone who comes to the gate.
Me: It’s a seal thing, Nell.
Nell: I know but it’s loud and annoying.
Me: They don’t think so. The last delivery driver bowed.
Nell: Our Penguin filmed it so it’s probably trending again on YouChewed.
Me: Princess is building up quite a following with her videos. Maybe Dave and Tony should make one?
Nell: Don’t you think Tony is busy enough?
Me: They could sing a sea shanty. I know Tony is missing his crew.
Nell: They could certainly perform a few songs at Dave and Harriet’s party.
Me: Yes. How are the preparations going?
Nell: Gladys is party coordinator so expect the unexpected.
Me: I can’t believe they are going to be 3 tomorrow. It was only yesterday that we brought them home.
Nell: The invitations have gone out. Dress code is Smart Not Casual and hats must be worn at all times.
Nell: Of course. Harriet wants dancing and David just wants bacon sandwiches.
Me: There has to be cake and ice cream?
Nell: Poppy is baking the cake and we’ve organised Mr Whippet for the ice cream.
Me: Mr Whippet? Do I know him?
Nell: It’s not always a him but it’s always a whippet. It’s an ice cream van. You must have seen it.
Me: I thought it was called Mr Whippy.
Nell: Don’t be silly. Dogs must be called by their full breed. You wouldn’t call me a Labby?
Me: No. Sorry.
