One of those Days

Nell: Would you mind? That’s a very unattractive angle. It makes my bottom look big.

Me: But the light is so lovely.

Nell: Can’t an animal enjoy a walk in peace without constantly being photographed?

Me: I wanted to capture the moment.

Nell: You wouldn’t like it.

Me: No. I hate having my photo taken.

Nell: Well, then.

Me: Could we just walk and talk?

Nell: Well, that rather depends.

Me: On what?

Nell: On whether you are having one of your philosophical days, which I suspect might be the case from all the sighing.

Me: I was just thinking about the strange world we’re living in at the moment.

Nell: Here we go.

Me: It’s a bit dark though, isn’t it?

Nell: It’s Autumn. The nights are drawing in. What do you expect?

Me: I mean, some days you find yourself searching for the light.

Nell: The torch is by the back door where it always is.

Me: You know what I mean. Life can get you down.

Nell: Everyone has their ups and downs and this is a difficult time for all of us. We will get through it together.

Me: Yes. The important thing is not to bottle it all up inside.

Nell: No one could accuse you of that.

Me: We need to reach out.

Nell: What you need is a bacon sandwich and a cup of Earl Grey.

Me: Yes, I do.

Nell: And a cuddle with David on the sofa.

Me: Sounds perfect.

Nell: So, that’s what we will do when we get home. Remember those we’ve loved and lost are always watching over us.

Me: Yes. They are.

Nell: Especially during times like these.

Me: Yes.

Nell: And if we didn’t have the darkness, we wouldn’t see them shine.

Me: You’re right. Sorry.
