Me: Are you ignoring me?
Nell: I am simply resting after a very busy few days.
Me: In a grumpy way.
Nell: I can’t be sweetness and light all the time you know.
Me: Is it because the boys have gone to their new home?
Nell: Of course, it isn’t. They only live down the road now.
Me: You and Boo could be twins, you know.
Nell: Do stop.
Me: Seriously, you look so much like each other but you couldn’t be more different in character.
Nell: Boo is a worrier.
Me: Yes, and he isn’t bossy at all.
Nell: I beg your pardon?
Me: Did I say bossy? I meant he doesn’t have your organisational skills.
Nell: That’s better. By the way, Our Penguin’s video of Driftwood Bark playing ‘The Beefy Shake’ is trending on YouChewed?
Me: Wonderful. I was surprised to see them performing this morning at Sunday Songs.
Nell: The Welsh corgi choir are huge fans of Driftwood Bark. David couldn’t say no.
Me: Well, Gladys and the Llamas are bringing a whole new meaning to shaking. Some of those Welsh corgis can really move.
Nell: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Lycra is not for everyone, especially corgis.
Me: It is a little unflattering but they’re all having such fun.
Nell: Babycakes Gillespie has invited himself to Sunday lunch again.
Me: Oh dear.
Nell: He’s bringing American apple pie.
Me: I love apple pie.
Nell: All I can say is, Choices need to be made.
Me: Personally, I enjoy custard with my pie, but sometimes I prefer ice cream, or cream, or even all three.
Nell: I am not talking about custard. Good grief. Poppy needs to make a decision about Babycakes and John. Did you just say all three?
Me: Yes. Sorry.
