David is Awfully Proud

Me: Has The Growl on Sunday arrived yet?

Nell: Yes. I’m reading it now. Rupert delivered the papers first thing this morning.

Me: How exciting.

Nell: David is certainly ridiculously pleased to see his column. Have you seen the way he’s behaving?

Me: No. Why? What’s he doing?

Nell: Demanding Extra Cuddles.

Me: He does love a good cuddle.

Nell: Playing Cheeky Animals.

Me: Bless him.

Nell: Sitting in the yellow chair.

Me: Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy. So affectionate.

Nell: He doesn’t need to throw himself at Kev like that.

Me: Kev’s fine. He and Jamie are so glad to see the first edition go out.

Nell: I’m interviewing Jamie for the next edition.

Me: Yes, I know you are. Dave worked awfully hard. He deserves a cuddle.

Nell: We all worked hard. I interviewed Sunny.

Me: I know you did.

Nell: Poppy submitted a recipe.

Me: Yes, and I told a joke.

Nell: Don’t remind me.

Me: How are Gladys and the llamas after yesterday’s Beefy attack, by the way?

Nell: They are out there now doing some kind of May dance with the Welsh corgi choir.

Me: I’m glad it hasn’t dampened their enthusiasm.

Nell: It will take more than a screeching Beefy to stop a llama from performing. Sharp beak or not.

Me: Talking about performing. Wasn’t Poppy magnificent?

Nell: She really is extraordinarily brave and a wonderful swordsdog.

Me: I’m not sure she meant to cut the Maypole in half though.

Nell: It certainly sent the Beefies flying.

Me: It was awfully kind of Alejandro to step in and pretend to be a Maypole.

Nell: Any excuse to wear his Aztec crown.

Me: I wish I had an Aztec crown.

Nell: Just go and put the kettle on while I finish reading.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
