Me: It was glorious down on the beach, wasn’t it?
Nell: Most invigorating.
Me: And you joined the puppies for a swim.
Nell: Stop calling them puppies. David and Harriet will be 5 next year.
Me: Was the water cold?
Nell: It’s November. Of course it was cold.
Me: I’m just amazed that you can swim in it.
Nell: A Labrador isn’t bothered by the cold. We’re not whippets.
Me: You like your warm blanket and duvet, Nell.
Nell: Yes, when I get home. You won’t see me wearing a coat when I’m out. Unless I’m attending a garden party, or a wedding of course.
Me: Don’t forget the hat.
Nell: I never forget the hat. Now, Terry told me something most interesting when he delivered the calendar.
Me: What calendar?
Nell: The Conversations with Nell 2022 Calendar. Do keep up.
Me: I didn’t know it was out yet.
Nell: It isn’t quite. Just almost and needs checking. Where was I?
Me: Why are we using Book a Beefy to deliver them? I thought people were going to buy them online from our World of Nell shop?
Nell: This was a one off. Anyway, that’s not the point. Terry says The Beefies are most unhappy about the biscuits.
Nell: Nobody wants them.
Nell: They are having to eat them themselves.
Me: Serves them right.
Nell: And now Portliness is becoming a Problem.
Me: I noticed their tummies seemed rounder but I thought it was just this time of year.
Nell: Terry says the suppliers are most annoyed about the lack of sales.
Me: The suppliers should have thought about that before they tainted the biscuits and made people lose their voices.
Nell: That was the whole point of it though, wasn’t it?
Me: Oh yes. Sorry.
