Cuddly Friday

Me: It’s obviously cuddly Friday today, at least for some.

Nell: Rainy days are for cuddling.

Me: May I join you?

Nell: There’s no room.

Me: It’s my bed.

Nell: You know perfectly well that we have a non exclusivity clause in this house about beds.

Me: Do we?

Nell: Yes. Beds are too be shared.

Me: Apart from Poppy’s palace.

Nell: Obviously. Nobody can get into Poppy’s Palace.

Me: Nobody would dare.

Nell: Quite.

Me: But I don’t want to lie in a dog bed.

Nell: That’s your choice. Now, I have a question for you.

Me: How exciting. Do I need some paper and a pencil?

Nell: Why on earth would you need that?

Me: It might be a quiz. I love quizzes.

Nell: It is not a quiz and you don’t need to phone a friend, although you could if you wanted to.

Me: Right. Fire away then. I’m all ears.

Nell: Don’t be silly. You’re not a spaniel.

Me: So what’s the question?

Nell: Would you favour straight, or curly in a coat?

Me: My coats tend to be rather plain.

Nell: Not your coat. A dog’s coat.

Me: Oh. Gosh.

Nell: Curly coats are quite the thing at the moment.

Me: Yes. They certainly seem to be.

Nell: I was only saying to my friend Dorothy just the other day that one can’t go anywhere nowadays without bumping into a curly coated dog.

Me: You might need your glasses checking.

Nell: Don’t be so cheeky. You know I only need glasses for reading.

Me: I’ve always admired a wavy coat. A bit like yours actually.

Nell: You are too kind but none of this is going to help Gladys.

Me: Gladys?

Nell: Yes. Should she go for curls, or not?

Me: I don’t know. Sorry.
