The Power of Affection and 13 means Lace

Me: Cuddles with Tony is the highlight of Dave’s day.

Nell: The power of Affection should not be underestimated. I, myself, look forward to my evening Cuddles with Kev enormously.

Me: I know you do. If I’m not out of my armchair and up to bed by 10pm you start growling at me.

Nell: The armchair is mine from 10pm. Kev and I need some quality time together.

Me: What if I want to watch something on television?

Nell: Don’t be silly. You get tired at around 9pm nowadays. Be honest.

Me: I’m getting old.

Nell: We all are.

Me: Talking of Affection, it’s my wedding anniversary tomorrow so if I want to stay up late with Kev I will.

Nell: Fine, but we both know you won’t.

Me: Let’s see, and if I do, no growling.

Nell: My lips are sealed.

Me: It’ll be 13 years since we got married. So much has happened in that time. You came into my life, for one.

Nell: It’s strange to think of you without me.

Me: It is.

Nell: How on earth did you manage?

Me: I don’t know.

Nell: Well, I’m going to make sure tomorrow is a Perfectly Romantic Day. 13 years is lace so we shall all wear lace collars.

Me: Please don’t.

Nell: Fine, but you should.

Me: I’m not wearing a lace collar, Nell.

Nell: It’s very on trend. You see lace everywhere nowadays.

Me: Not on me.

Nell: Maybe a lace tablecloth will suffice.

Me: I’m not wearing one of those either.

Nell: Very funny. You could always wave a lace handkerchief, I suppose.

Me: Can’t we forget the lace?

Nell: Just leave it to me. I’ll make sure it’s a memorable day.

Me: That’s what I’m worried about.

Nell: Trust me.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
