Halloween 2020

Me: I didn’t know we were wearing hats to breakfast.

Nell: It’s Halloween. Hats must be worn at all times. Breakfast was ages ago.

Me: But I can see bacon sandwiches.

Nell: They are for elevenses.

Me: I don’t think Dave can wait until eleven.

Nell: He’s going to have to. It keeps him focused.

Me: My poor Big Brave Beautiful Boy and he is looking so handsome in his feathered hat.

Nell: Never mind that, we have more serious issues to deal with.

Me: What?

Nell: John suggested bagels should be included on tonight’s Halloween menu.

Me: Well, they could be.

Nell: You can’t put a sausage in a bagel.

Me: No. I suppose not but maybe some people don’t want a sausage. Maybe they would just like cream cheese or, smoked salmon, or both.

Nell: Have you been talking to The Cat?

Me: No. It’s far too early for The Cat. It’s never seen until after ten and then only with a black coffee and never to talk to until at least half past twelve.

Nell: True. Anyway, Poppy’s not having it and we are on her side.

Me: Probably wise as she is wearing her horns.

Nell: Yes. It’s always a sign that she means business.

Me: If we need something American, then how about Boo-Berry pie?

Nell: Very funny.

Me: We could probably get some from the Ghost-ery store.

Nell: Do stop.

Me: And we mustn’t forget the I-Scream.

Nell: Good grief.

Me: I hope there will be party games.

Nell: Yes, Gladys is in charge of entertainment.

Me: My favourite game is Hide and Shriek.

Nell: That’s it. Go and get your hat.

Me: Ok, but I need to shower first. Can I borrow your Sham-Boo?

Nell: Go.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
