Joking with Dave

Me: Dave is never going to win Cheeky Animals.

Nell: David has an honest open nature.

Me: He can’t resist sticking his tongue out even though he knows I’m watching.

Nell: I think he enjoys you winning more than he minds losing.

Me: Yes. Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: He walked straight past his bowl to come and upstairs and greet you this morning.

Me: He did?

Nell: It was his second breakfast, but still quite impressive.

Me: A full bowl means everything to a Labrador.

Nell: It does.

Me: I have a joke for you.

Nell: Oh dear.

Me: A Labrador bumps into a Genie.

Nell: Was it David?

Me: It might have been.

Nell: David often bumps into people.

Me: So Dave bumps into a Genie and the Genie gives him three wishes.

Nell: I’m surprised he didn’t get a telling off. Genies can be rather tetchy.

Me: Anyway, the Genie asks Dave for his first wish and after a little bit of thought…

Nell: David doesn’t like to linger.

Me: Dave says he would like a bowl of food that keeps on refilling once it was empty.

Nell: That’s an excellent idea. Well done, David.

Me: Yes. The Genie agrees and the bowl appears. Dave starts eating and sure enough the bowl refills every time.

Nell: Extraordinary.

Me: So the Genie asks Dave for his other two wishes.

Nell: I can’t wait to hear this.

Me: And Dave says, ‘I’ll have another couple of those bowls, please.’

Nell: What?

Me: Isn’t that hilarious?

Nell: He’s wasted his wishes.

Me: I know.

Nell: I need a word with him right now.

Me: But it didn’t really happen, Nell. It was only a joke.

Nell: Oh yes. It just sounded like something David would do.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
