Friday Excitement

Nell: Are you quite well?

Me: Yes.

Nell: Why are you dancing around the bedroom in tears?

Me: I’ve had some wonderful news.

Nell: Care to share?

Me: Chris has booked his flight from Toronto. I’m going to see my son again after 18 months.

Nell: So when is he arriving?

Me: Two weeks today. He will be with us from 1st to 7th October.

Nell: This is excellent news but there’s a lot to be done before then.

Me: I know.

Nell: We need to have a family meeting. Menus must be planned, beds must be made and hair will need to be cut.

Me: Not everyone’s hair, Nell.

Nell: No. Most of the wilder haired animals are having their hair done before Strictly anyway.

Me: Talking of Strictly. Kev is taking these dance classes awfully seriously.

Nell: Is he now?

Me: Yes. I saw him chatting to the Portuguese Podenco about the tango.

Nell: I didn’t know Kev spoke Portuguese.

Me: Neither did I.

Nell: You know the photo shoot is tomorrow so we can expect that lion to appear. He can’t stay on his ship for ever.

Me: It’s been spotted all along the coast. People were telling me. Usually surrounded by screaming Beefies.

Nell: He’s just showing off. Rupert says it’s best not to take any notice of him.

Me: I’m surprised the Beefies are still with him. Didn’t he get immunity by cooperating with the police?

Nell: Beefies are birds of very little brain. How else do you explain them choosing Stephen Seagull as their leader.

Me: Maybe you shouldn’t wear the tiara, Nell. What if Lionel King steals it?

Nell: I shall wear what I like. I’m not letting an international jewel thief influence my choice of crown.

Me: No, of course not. Sorry.
