Sensible Decisions

Me: It was glorious down on the beach, wasn’t it?

Nell: Yes, I enjoyed myself immensely.

Me: You walked so much better after your monthly injection.

Nell: It really helps.

Me: And you were sensible and stopped now and again to gather your strength.

Nell: And admire the view.

Me: We’re very lucky to live where we do.

Nell: David was in good spirits.

Me: His little face when The Cat told him he was going to be Jubilee King.

Nell: I wouldn’t call it little, but yes, David was pleased.

Me: Is there going to be a Jubilee Queen?

Nell: Yes.

Me: Are you sure The Queen will be happy with that?

Nell: Absolutely. The last time we spoke I asked her.

Me: You talked to The Queen?

Nell: We zoomed actually, if you must know.

Me: How will it be decided?

Nell: The public will need to vote.

Me: Will they really?

Nell: Yes.

Me: Do you think I might have a chance of being chosen as Jubilee Queen?

Nell: Unlikely, but possible.

Me: I know who’s getting my vote.

Nell: Pray tell.

Me: I can’t do that, Nell. All votes have to be anonymous.

Nell: Why? You know The Cat and I voted for David as Jubilee King.

Me: You were the only ones.

Nell: Nevertheless.

Me: I’m not telling you.

Nell: You’re going to choose Harriet, aren’t you? Or Sally?

Me: You don’t know that. I might vote for Dorothy.

Nell: You can’t vote for my friend Dorothy. You don’t even know her.

Me: I know she’s one of the Salcombe Setters.

Nell: As long as it’s not Princess. I can’t take all that clapping.

Me: It’s a seal thing.

Nell: Decisions are always best made after extensive discussion.

Me: I’m not telling you, Nell. Sorry.
