Editor in Chief

Me: May I have a word?

Nell: I’m awfully busy at the moment.

Me: It won’t take long.

Nell: I hope not. I’ve got an important zoom call with David and Kev in a few minutes.

Me: Why do you need to zoom them? They’re in the same house.

Nell: Kev is up in the studio and David is outside on the terrace.

Me: Well, call them inside.

Nell: We need to share our screens. Now, what is this all about?

Me: I couldn’t help noticing that you and Dave are wearing glasses.

Nell: You know I need reading glasses.

Me: I didn’t know Dave needed them too.

Nell: To be honest he doesn’t, but Kev wears glasses and so do I and he didn’t want to be left out.

Me: The llamas aren’t going to start wearing glasses too, are they?

Nell: No. Not unless they need them.

Me: The thing is, Nell, I know there’s something going on.

Nell: It’s supposed to be a surprise.

Me: I won’t tell anyone.

Nell: That chip has sailed.

Me: Don’t you mean ship?

Nell: No. A soggy chip cannot be saved.

Me: Please tell.

Nell: You know the Daily Growl?

Me: Yes.

Nell: Well, they’ve been making changes at their sister newspaper and they’ve offered Kev the post of Editor in Chief of The Growl on Sunday.

Me: Gosh.

Nell: It’s going to be a monthly newsletter and will go out to all subscribers of The World of Nell.

Me: Can anyone subscribe?

Nell: Of course they can. In fact hundreds already have.

Me: When is the first edition?

Nell: Sunday, 2nd May.

Me: Why is Dave wearing glasses now if he can’t read it until then?

Nell: David is writing a column. Do keep up.

Me: Oh, I see. Sorry.
