Adoration vs Guidance

Me: You and Kev are completely besotted with each other.

Nell: Jealousy is a most unattractive trait.

Me: Look at the way you’re gazing into each other’s eyes.

Nell: We have an understanding.

Me: You never look at me like that.

Nell: Of course I don’t.

Me: Why not?

Nell: You need guidance not adoration.

Me: There you’ve admitted it. You adore Kev.

Nell: You know I do.

Me: I want to be adored, too.

Nell: You are. Just in a different way.

Me: I get hard stares and disapproving looks.

Nell: Here we go.

Me: And Kev gets soppy gazes. Thank goodness for Dave who openly adores me.

Nell: David adores everyone. He’s a loving animal.

Me: Harriet adores me too.

Nell: Are we going to go through everyone now? Only this is becoming rather tedious.

Me: Just saying.

Nell: You need a firm paw and you know it.

Me: I don’t.

Nell: You get easily carried away on flights of fancy and it’s my job to keep you grounded.

Me: Some people enjoy my flights of fancy.

Nell: I know but you mustn’t lose sight of reality.

Me: Have you ever wondered if fruit could talk what bananas would sound like?

Nell: This is exactly what I was talking about.

Me: I think they would have a sort of squishy sounding voice.

Nell: I give up.

Me: Apples would be crisply sweet and a little bit sharp on occasions.

Nell: Good grief.

Me: And lemons would sound slightly dangerous.

Nell: Oh dear.

Me: But not as dangerous as limes.

Nell: I worry about you sometimes, I really do.

Me: You don’t need to.

Nell: It’s my job to look after you.

Me: At least you care.

Nell: You know I do. You and me. Always.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
