A Worrying Development

Nell: There’s been A Worrying Development.

Me: What’s happened?

Nell: We were all in the activity field with Kev enjoying a pleasant walk.

Me: I’m so glad you were able to stretch your legs. Only a few more weeks until we can go to the sea again.

Nell: May I continue?

Me: Of course.

Nell: When Kev stopped and looked up at the sky.

Me: He does that. He used to fly helicopters.

Nell: There weren’t any helicopters.

Me: Well, he and Poppy love discussing flying so I expect he was just monitoring the weather, or whatever pilots do.

Nell: This has nothing to do with the weather. Where was I?

Me: Kev was looking at the sky.

Nell: Yes, and then he sat down on a tree trunk and started singing.

Me: Well, that’s not worrying, Nell. It’s sensible. He knows he has to rest.

Nell; What about the singing?

Me: He must be feeling much better to suddenly do that.

Nell: It wasn’t any old song.

Me: What was it?

Nell: ‘Summer Nights’.

Me: A rather unexpected choice.

Nell: Exactly what I thought.

Me: Because you can’t really sing it on your own.

Nell: That’s not what I meant.

Me: I hope you joined in.

Nell: Of course we did. Harriet sang Sandy’s part. Dave sang the boys’ and Poppy and I sang the girls’.

Me: Good. I’m glad he didn’t sing alone. He has a growly sort of voice which really wouldn’t have worked in the Sandy bits.

Nell: That’s not the point. It’s from ‘Grease’.

Me: Oh yes.

Nell: And it happened after he looked at the sky.

Me: What was Lionel King doing in the sky? Does he fly helicopters too?

Nell: This has nothing to do with helicopters, or Lionel King.

Me: Oh. Sorry.
