Me: It was lovely to see Tony yesterday and so kind of him to collect my inhaler from the pharmacy after work.
Nell: Tony is a kind soul. I’m sorry David missed him but at least Harriet and I were there.
Me: Where was Dave, by the way?
Nell: He’d gone fishing with Knitwear Wolf, Princess and Our Penguin.
Me: With fishing rods?
Nell: Of course, how else were they supposed to catch the fish?
Me: I thought seals and penguins caught fish in their mouths.
Nell: I worry about you sometimes, I really do. Of course seals and penguins catch fish in their mouths. You didn’t expect Princess and Our Penguin to use a rod, did you?
Me: That’s why I asked.
Nell: Only David and Rupert need fishing rods. Try and be a little realistic.
Nell: Princess and Our Penguin go to the sea for the swimming. The fish are just a bonus, like snacking in the car.
Me: I love swimming in the sea.
Nell: Well, that’s not happening any time soon.
Me: At least we are out of isolation today as I’m no longer infectious.
Nell: Which is good to know.
Me: Wasn’t it kind of the vet to bring round your medication? He said he was passing by and they knew we were isolating.
Nell: They are delightful people.
Me: Actually, when things happen you realise how many lovely people there are out there, don’t you?
Nell: Yes, you do.
Me: Have the llamas recovered from accidentally dancing with a lion?
Nell: Gladys says they’re still a little jumpy and have taken a dislike to cloaks with attractive hoods.
Me: There can’t be many of them around at the moment, Nell. It is summer.
Nell: No, but there could be.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
