You Might Be Right

Me: I’ve been doing some thinking.

Nell: Here we go.

Me: The good thing about living so close to the sea is it’s always lovely whatever the weather.

Nell: It’s actually quite awful in the rain.

Me: No, it isn’t. A walk along the beach can still be really invigorating. The gentle caress of summer rain on your face.

Nell: Good grief. Why are we discussing rain? It wasn’t raining when we were on the beach.

Me: No, but it might have been.

Nell: Well, a Beefy might have delivered our Chinese takeaway yesterday.

Me: Was it Terry?

Nell: No, Terry works for Book a Beefy.

Me: Do you think the Beefies are running our takeaway now?

Nell: No, I do not. I think along with many others the current situation has forced some of the Beefies to diversify.

Me: Are you thinking of going into politics?

Nell: What on earth made you say that? We were discussing a gang of seagulls.

Me: It’s just recently you’ve been making comments about the economic crisis and the current situation.

Nell: Not everyone discusses the weather.

Me: Almost everyone does.

Nell: True.

Me: Was the Beefy wearing a hat?

Nell: Yes. A baseball cap.

Me: It was probably trying to look less like a Beefy.

Nell: Possibly.

Me: Because if you opened the door to a seagull carrying a bag of Chinese takeaway you might jump to the wrong conclusion.

Nell: You certainly might.

Me: You might think it was stolen.

Nell: It was our order and we paid for it over the phone.

Me: Oh yes.

Nell: And Beefies don’t steal and share.

Me: Apart from mackerel.

Nell: Throwing a fish at someone isn’t sharing even if it does end up in a mackerel pate.

Me: You might be right. Sorry.
