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