Tony is Back and Dave has Big News

Me: It’s good to see Tony back again.

Nell: It is. Did you notice David whisper something in Tony’s ear?

Me: I did. He allowed you and Harriet to greet Tony first though. Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: It was the action of an affianced animal, if you ask me.

Me: Affianced? Do you mean what I think you mean?

Nell: Why don’t you ask me?

Me: Did Sally say yes?

Nell: She did.

Me: Dave and Sally are engaged?

Nell: They are.

Me: That’s wonderful news. Tell me everything.

Nell: Well, there were a few hiccups on the way.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: Poppy packed enough food for an army so the hamper was very heavy.

Me: I can imagine.

Nell: David had to keep stopping and every time he did Sally insisted he fortified himself with a drink and a small snack.

Me: Dave doesn’t do small.

Nell: Quite. At least the hamper became progressively lighter.

Me: True.

Nell: They managed to find a lovely secluded part of the beach.

Me: Good.

Nell: With room for the Welsh Corgi Choir, Princess and Our Penguin.

Me: I beg your pardon?

Nell: You need background singing when you’re proposing, along with someone to film it and an enthusiastic clapper.

Me: Do you?

Nell: You do if you’re David. Anyway, it was all going well until he got down on bended front legs to propose.

Me: What happened?

Nell: He ended up with his bottom in the air.

Me: I’ve seen him do that before. It’s adorable.

Nell: Fortunately Sally thought so too and said ‘A thousand times yes, darling Davey.’

Me: Are you sure you weren’t there? You seem to know everything.

Nell: It’s trending on YouChewed. Just search for ‘Bottoms up’ and you’ll find it.

Me: Right. Sorry.
