Me: Poppy is a proper softy on the sly.
Nell: What are you talking about?
Me: You should see her having a special cuddle with Kev in the yellow chair. It’s not the Poppy we know.
Nell: Poppy has many sides to her. As do we all.
Me: True. I’m developing my strong side.
Me: Yes. Kev can’t do anything strenuous for the next 6 weeks so it’s all down to me.
Nell: With a little help from us all.
Me: Dave was awfully good on his walk. He kept close and didn’t pull. Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy.
Nell: David knows how to behave. Sometimes.
Me: Is there any news on The Cat’s store card, by the way?
Nell: It seems The Cat is not the only one.
Me: Oh dear.
Nell: My friend Dorothy has been banned from Starbarks.
Me: What did she do?
Nell: Ordered several blueberry muffins and a caramel frappuccino on her Starbarks card and left without paying.
Me: I didn’t know you could do that.
Nell: Yes, order on your iBone and pay on collection.
Me: Or not, as the case may be.
Nell: Quite. And Dorothy doesn’t even like caramel.
Me: Why did she order it?
Nell: She didn’t.
Me: Who collected them then?
Nell: A Beefy in a chauffeur’s cap. It said Dorothy would pay later.
Me: The cheek of it.
Nell: I know. As I said to Dorothy, ‘If I had a chauffeur, which I have done in the past, I certainly wouldn’t choose a Beefy.’
Me: Who would?
Nell: There are a couple of suspects.
Me: Yes. Someone who likes blueberry muffins, scotch eggs and caramel frappuccinos. It wasn’t Dave, was it?
Nell: Good grief. It’s not about the food. Who has a Beefy chauffeur?
Me: Yes. Sorry.
