Embracing a Sunny Morning

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.

Me: Why?

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.

Nell: Why?

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.
