Kev comes home

Me: What a wonderful welcome home.

Nell: Yes. We were talking to Tony when suddenly darling Kev appeared.

Me: Dave couldn’t believe his eyes. He was so delighted he squealed with joy.

Nell: Kev had been gone an awfully long time. Days and days.

Me: It was only a few hours, Nell.

Nell: Are you sure?

Me: Yes. He only went to the dentist.

Nell: We thought he had gone away.

Me: Sometimes you get your times really wrong.

Nell: It certainly felt like days and days.

Me: Well, it wasn’t.

Nell: It was like a lifetime.

Me: Don’t exaggerate.

Nell: Such an anxious wait. Even Poppy was concerned.

Me: Did you feel like that when I went to the hairdressers?

Nell: Not really.

Me: Are you sure?

Nell: Yes. I knew where you were.

Me: How?

Nell: You texted me on WoofsApp. A lot, I might add.

Me: I needed your advice.

Nell: It was only a few hours. We could have discussed it when you got back.

Me: I was gone longer than Kev, you know.

Nell: It didn’t feel very long.

Me: You knew Kev was going to see the dentist.

Nell: I did not. One minute he was here and the next he was gone.

Me: That isn’t true.

Nell: We were so worried. We waited and waited by the gate.

Me: I know you did.

Nell: Counting the hours until he came home.

Me: You mean minutes.

Nell: I do not. Thank goodness Tony arrived to brighten our lonely day.

Me: For goodness sake. You are a drama queen sometimes.

Nell: Waiting for someone you love is so painful.

Me: But you love me too.

Nell: Just stop texting us when you’re out and give us a chance to miss you then.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
