Nell: Do we have to watch this?
Me: You’re a bit grumpy this morning. Did you have a few too many cocktails at the Saucy Seagull bar yesterday evening?
Nell: I only had the one, if you must know.
Nell: Someone arrived who I didn’t want to see.
Nell: Let’s just say this film isn’t helping.
Me: It’s The Lion King and the children have never seen it.
Nell: I know but it’s inappropriate for the current situation.
Me: Harriet doesn’t mind. She’s enjoying it.
Nell: David got completely carried away during ‘Hakuna Matata’.
Me: I always think Dave is rather like a lion.
Nell: David is a Labrador in the prime of life.
Me: Yes, but there’s something liony about him.
Nell: That’s not a word and please remember that lions are not always our friends.
Me: Are we talking about that baddy Lionel King?
Nell: We are.
Me: Was he at the Saucy Seagull?
Nell: He was.
Me: Did he order a cocktail?
Nell: Of course he did. It’s a cocktail bar.
Me: Did his voice sound a little barky?
Nell: It did not.
Me: So, you wouldn’t say he sounded like Harriet?
Nell: I would not.
Me: That’s something.
Nell: No, it isn’t because everyone else did.
Me: Do you mean the Beefies?
Me: All of them?
Nell: Definitely the ones at the bar.
Me: Gosh, that is a worry.
Nell: It is. If Harriet’s voice can be shared among many the potential for mischief is great.
Me: Did Sandy Shore agree to open the bar here?
Nell: Yes. Tomorrow evening.
Me: Chris flies back to Toronto tomorrow.
Nell: I know.
Me: I may be a little sad.
Nell: We will all be a little sad.
Me: Yes, we will. Sorry.
