Enough about Ears

Me: What was Tony telling you and Dave?

Nell: Several packages have been delivered in the area from Fifi la Beefy.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: We are guessing that they are nests and dog beds of various sizes.

Me: Well, not everyone is the same size, Nell.

Nell: That’s not the point.

Me: I saw Dave whisper something in his ear.

Nell: It was probably about Sally. You know how he likes to confide in Tony. The trouble is he ends up checking his ear as well which is a little too forward.

Me: Yes. He does that to me, too.

Nell: The confiding?

Me: No. The checking.

Nell: Yes. I have the same problem.

Me: In your case it’s rather useful as he reminds me when I have to clean your ears.

Nell: Enough about ears.

Me: Actually, I should really do them now.

Nell: It’s Mother’s Day in the UK on Sunday.

Me: Yes. I know.

Nell: Well, I was on a Zoom call with your publishers yesterday and…

Me: You were on a call with Abby and Victoria?

Nell: Yes. Stop interrupting.

Me: Why wasn’t I included?

Nell: You were writing. Anyway, we all decided to offer a discount on the book for Mother’s Day.

Me: That’s lovely.

Nell: Yes. It would make the perfect present.

Me: It would.

Nell: So, as soon as we know more we will pass it on to everyone.

Me: Thank you for that, Nell. It’s an excellent idea.

Nell: Yes, I thought so.

Me: I don’t know what I would do without you. Now, about those ears.

Nell: What would you say to a fresh scone and a cup of tea?

Me: Sounds lovely.

Nell: Poppy made a fresh batch.

Me: I’m not going to forget about your ears, Nell. Sorry.
