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?
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.
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.
