Me: Maybe we should all start the week with a kiss? Look at Poppy and Harriet.
Nell: Harriet knows Poppy is exhausted after all that cooking yesterday.
Me: Does that mean today is leftovers day?
Nell: If you are talking about cold roast chicken and bubble and squeak then you should be very thankful.
Me: Do you know if they have bubble and squeak in other countries?
Nell: They might fry their leftover roasted vegetables but I doubt that they call them bubble and squeak.
Me: Dolphins squeak.
Nell: I am aware. Did you see the latest ‘Glide with Gladys’ on YouChewed?
Nell: Gladys performs her exercises on a raised platform in the middle of the pool with a whole troupe of dancing dolphins up on their tails circling backwards around her.
Me: How spectacular.
Nell: I just wish Princess didn’t insist on clapping all the way through it.
Me: It’s a seal thing.
Nell: Our Penguin says Gladys and the dolphins are trending everywhere.
Me: I’m surprised Princess isn’t jealous.
Nell: She knows the dolphins are leaving soon.
Me: Are they going back to school? See what I did there?
Nell: Good grief. No, dolphins need space to swim and Knitwear Wolf can’t be expected to keep taking them down to the sea. He’s got quite enough on his paws with Princess and he only has a motorbike and sidecar.
Me: He does have exceptionally large paws. They make Dave’s look small.
Nell: Wolves walk and run on their toes. It makes their legs longer and nimble so they can run with speed.
Me: Like ballet dancers.
Nell: What are you talking about? Wolves are nothing like ballet dancers.
Me: They dance on their toes.
Nell: I worry about you sometimes. I really do.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
