Nobody is Jumping Out of Anything

Me: Birds are amazing little things, aren’t they?

Nell: Are they?

Me: Yes, it was so hot yesterday that nobody could do much at all but they all carried on.

Nell: They certainly did. The noise.

Me: They were having fun enjoying the sunshine.

Nell: David lay outside briefly.

Me: Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: I called him inside as we dogs can overheat very quickly.

Me: That’s true. You need to make sure you keep cool and drink plenty of water.

Nell: We do. I’m not sure why you found the birds so impressive.

Me: I was amazed at how busy they were. Chirping and splashing in the bird bath. Robin was in fine form. He followed me everywhere.

Nell: You know there’s more than one of him.

Me: Yes, but it was definitely Rob. We were chatting. He’s an excellent listener.

Nell: Good for him.

Me: And I managed to take a photo of a little bird with a feather in its mouth flying up to the roof.

Nell: You’re not this excited when David takes a tea towel.

Me: Of course I’m not. That’s stealing. He knows he’s not allowed and he still does it.

Nell: That bird stole a feather.

Me: It was a white feather.

Nell: Ah, well that is different. White feathers are messages from loved ones.

Me: Yes, they are.

Nell: I can see that might have more significance than a tea towel. Now, you know it’s the puppies’ birthday tomorrow?

Me: Yes. They will be 5.

Nell: Sally is going to surprise David.

Me: She’s not jumping out of a cake, is she? Only I’m not sure he should be startled in this heat.

Nell: It’s just a surprise visit. Nobody is jumping out of anything, I hope.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
