Frothy Sea

Me: The sea was really frothy yesterday.

Nell: Yes.

Me: Like a bubble bath. It made me want to jump right in.

Nell: I wouldn’t. It’s extremely cold.

Me: The kite surfers didn’t care.

Nell: They’re wearing wetsuits.

Me: Harriet doesn’t care either.

Nell: Harriet is an extreme swimmer.

Me: You used to go in more. You’re a little wary now.

Nell: I am a Labrador of a certain age.

Me: True.

Nell: One thinks twice about running into freezing water.

Me: You didn’t think twice about running into that bulldog.

Nell: What do you mean?

Me: He was coming over to say hello and you body checked him.

Nell: I merely gave him a little nudge in the right direction. He wasn’t adhering to the social distancing rules.

Me: It wasn’t very friendly. You’re becoming a bit grumpy in your old age.

Nell: I shall be 9 next month and deserve a little respect. I don’t appreciate being bounced.

Me: You had better tell Poppy then.

Nell: Yes. Poppy never gets tired of bouncing people.

Me: Poppy is a disgrace on the beach. Shouting at everyone and trying to chase dogs of all shapes and sizes. Thank goodness the puppies are friendly.

Nell: Or even over friendly in David’s case.

Me: He’s going to love it when we can have friends and family to visit us again, isn’t he?

Nell: We are all going to love it.

Me: Yes.

Nell: You aren’t the only one who’s been missing them, you know.

Me: Well, that’s good because I was talking to my sister Charlotte and her three boys are coming to spend the day with us next Friday.

Nell: Are you talking about Naughty Nigel, Seamus and Boo?

Me: Yes, isn’t that lovely?

Nell: The whole day?

Me: Yes. Sorry.
