What a Day

Me: It was so good to see Dave and Tony back together. They’ve been apart for far too long.

Nell: It was exactly what David needed after a visit from those horrible Beefies. Wretched birds.

Me: Tell me what happened again.

Nell: When the antelopes got to the head of the queue the Beefies marched into David’s consulting room.

Me: What, all of them?

Nell: Yes. There were six I believe.

Me: How scary.

Nell: David said “What can I do for you chaps?’

Me: Chaps?

Nell: He was a little nervous.

Me: Understandable.

Nell: Then the biggest Beefy jumped on his table and said ‘No, my friend. What can we do for you?’

Me: Dave’s not their friend.

Nell: That’s not the point. The Beefies want protection money. Apparently David’s business is at risk if he doesn’t pay up.

Me: But he’s being paid in bacon.

Nell: They’ll take anything as long as it’s weekly.

Me: What’s he going to do?

Nell: They left with a bacon sandwich.

Me: Gosh. Yesterday was quite a day with our visit to the beach, too.

Nell: Shall we discuss your behaviour?

Me: What do you mean?

Nell: Did Kev ask you not to walk through that puddle?

Me: Yes.

Nell: Did you listen?

Me: No.

Nell: Did the water come up to your waist in the middle?

Me: Yes.

Nell: As Tony pointed out when we told him, it was ‘The Vicar of Dibley’ and the giant puddle all over again.

Me: I wasn’t completely submerged, Nell, and the water was lovely and warm.

Nell: The state of you when we were walking back to the car.

Me: I didn’t care. It was so lovely to be by the sea again.

Nell: I think you mean in the sea.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
