Me: Well, Tony really enjoyed Dave’s singing. He even joined in.
Nell: I know. I heard them, thank you.
Me: There’s nothing wrong with embracing the joy of a beautiful morning.
Nell: It isn’t just the morning though, is it? Dave sings that song all day.
Me: Not all day, Nell.
Nell: No. Sometimes he and Babycakes Gillespie sing the Surrey song together.
Me: I thought Babycakes was behaving rather oddly when I saw his checked shirt.
Nell: He has an unusually deep voice for a pug.
Me: Good for him.
Nell: At least we know your theory about Lionel King is wrong.
Nell: He gets his coffee from Starbarks. He hasn’t been near Babycakes Gillespie, or his cart.
Me: Not even for a doughnut, or a bagel?
Nell: Not as far as I know.
Me: Why are the llamas singing then?
Nell: They’re not, are they?
Me: Yes. Something about ‘Kansas City’.
Nell: Good grief.
Me: They are putting their hearts and souls into it.
Nell: It means nothing. Those llamas are attention seekers. They will use any excuse to put on a performance.
Me: They’ve got excellent American accents.
Nell: Have they? Maybe Lionel was here again.
Me: He must have been with Harriet and Jim the Farm Dog.
Me: They’ve been duetting since dawn.
Nell: They often sing that song from West Side Story.
Me: No. This was ‘People Will Say We’re in Love’.
Nell: From ‘Oklahoma’?
Me: Yes. They sing it beautifully. Our Penguin has filmed it if you want to see. Princess clapped and clapped.
Nell: I wish she wouldn’t do that.
Me: It’s a seal thing. What about you? Are you still breaking into song?
Nell: I’m trying hard not to but ‘I Cain’t Say No’.
Me: Oh dear. Sorry.
