Stormy weather

Me: The weather is not particularly inviting today, is it?

Nell: It’s positively uninviting.

Me: Fortunately we’re not going out until lunchtime.

Nell: You’re not going anywhere. I heard you coughing in the night.

Me: I have regular coughing fits since catching Covid in July. There’s nothing to worry about. It passes.

Nell: Poppy is making you hot tea with lemon and ginger. Make sure you drink it all.

Me: I rather fancied a black coffee.

Nell: A black coffee?

Me: Yes.

Nell: You’ll be asking for a croissant next.

Me: That would be lovely.

Nell: No chance. Poppy is far too busy making a cake for The Queen.

Me: When are you going?

Nell: Friday. The car will be here around 11am.

Me: How exciting.

Nell: Yes. The Cat is coming over this afternoon with a selection of hats for everyone.

Me: Everyone? I thought it was just you, Dave and Harriet.

Nell: It is. And Henry and Horst.

Me: Does The Queen know about Henry and Horst?

Nell: Of course The Queen knows. You don’t just turn up to afternoon tea at Windsor Castle hoping to get a table for six.

Me: I just wondered if Her Majesty had ever entertained a woodlouse before.

Nell: This will be a first for her, as it happens. However, once I gave her their back story and we sent over their CVs, all was well.

Me: Henry and Horst have resumes?

Nell: You don’t think Sally would have hired them without one, do you?

Me: I didn’t know Sally had hired them.

Nell: Forget I just said that.

Me: So Henry and Horst are now officially spies? They’ll need trench coats and sunglasses.

Nell: They already have trench coats and nobody wears sunglasses in this weather. Do keep up.

Me: Sorry.
