Me: Don’t look at me like that.
Nell: I simply cannot believe this.
Me: It was booked weeks and weeks ago.
Nell: Taking Poppy to the vets to have her teeth cleaned at a time like this.
Me: Dental health is so important for general well being, Nell.
Nell: And leaving her there.
Me: We had to. I didn’t like leaving her either.
Nell: And no breakfast for anyone.
Me: Kev and I decided breakfast could wait until we got back. Poppy wasn’t allowed to eat.
Nell: David was fainting with hunger.
Me: He was not.
Nell: We shall need extra bacon.
Me: Boiled eggs will have to do.
Nell: No breakfast and no bacon.
Me: You can’t have bacon. You’re on a diet.
Nell: All I can say is thank goodness for Babycakes Gillespie.
Me: You’ve changed your tune.
Nell: We wouldn’t have survived without him.
Me: Do you mean you’ve all had bagels?
Me: And you have been grumbling about breakfast?
Nell: Bagels aren’t breakfast. Everyone knows that. There’s a hole in them for a start.
Me: What’s that got to do with anything?
Nell: You didn’t see a llama when you went to the vets, did you?
Me: They come out to the car, Nell, so we don’t see who is waiting to go in anymore.
Nell: I meant in a field.
Me: It was very foggy but I didn’t see any. Why?
Nell: One of them has gone missing.
Me: Oh no.
Nell: Gladys is annoyed because she needs it for this morning’s Glide with Gladys.
Me: Oh dear.
Nell: Fortunately, David has agreed to step in.
Me: Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy. Does he have any pyjamas?
Nell: You know he does. Blue and white striped ones.
Me: Oh yes. I forgot. Sorry.
