He’s Back

Me: That was an emotional moment. I must confess I had tears in my eyes.

Nell: Yes, it was wonderful.

Me: Seeing Tony and Dave reunited again.

Nell: They were so happy to see each other.

Me: Tony is still not well, though.

Nell: No. I told him he should go straight home as soon as he feels tired.

Me: Yes, he said he would and the Royal Mail are making sure he doesn’t have to do too much.

Nell: Good.

Me: He wanted me to thank everyone for their kind messages. They really meant a lot to him.

Nell: Yes, it’s always good to know that people care. He shouldn’t be back at work yet.

Me: The trouble is Tony loves people and he was missing everyone.

Nell: I understand.

Me: Yes. I think we all know how that feels, Nell.

Nell: Now, today is an extremely important one for our friends in the United States.

Me: Yes. I noticed Babycakes Gillespie was outside with his cart. Is Dave helping him?

Nell: Yes. Poppy agreed that bagels can be served today. I might try one later.

Me: I think Dave’s tried a few already.

Nell: You may have noticed that David and Babycakes are wearing hard hats.

Me: I did.

Nell: I’m afraid there was a Beefy attack first thing this morning.

Me: Mackerel?

Nell: Yes, and an octopus, would you believe?

Me: Where did they get that from?

Nell: I have no idea, but the poor thing was terrified.

Me: Is it still alive then?

Nell: Yes, didn’t you notice him resting in Princess’s pool?

Me: No, but I’m glad you warned me.

Nell: He’s called Manuel, by the way, and has lovely manners.

Me: Is he from Barcelona?

Nell: I don’t know. Why?

Me: No reason. Sorry.
