Tony pays a visit

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.

Me: Yes.

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.
