Casual Pants and Cheeky Animals

Nell: I’m not playing Cheeky Animals with David again.

Me: Why not?

Nell: He fell asleep.

Me: It’s ever so hot today, Nell. You can’t blame him.

Nell: It’s not as if I play that often anymore.

Me: I know.

Nell: But today I felt like a quick game.

Me: Fair enough.

Nell: And David said he was happy to join in.

Me: Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy. He’s such an accommodating dog.

Nell: So, there I was carefully sticking my tongue out when I heard snoring.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: I could have been loudly licking my paws and he wouldn’t have noticed.

Me: I would. Why do you all have to do that cleaning thing so loudly?

Nell: A clean animal has a clear heart.

Me: What does that even mean?

Nell: Clean paws open doors.

Me: Now you’re teasing me.

Nell: Anyway, Cheeky Animals is no fun played alone.

Me: I’ll play with you.

Nell: No. You’re dreadful at it.

Me: I’m not.

Nell: You can’t even pant casually.

Me: I didn’t know I had to.

Nell: Of course you do. It’s the moment when a casual pant turns into a sticking out tongue that is one of the most exciting parts of Cheeky Animals.

Me: Talking of casual pants, did you see the huge moon yesterday?

Nell: Yes, I did, but that’s got nothing at all to do with casual pants.

Me: If we were in the US right now we’d be discussing trousers.

Nell: I give up.

Me: Talking of trousers.

Nell: Good grief.

Me: Did Knitwear Wolf feel the urge to howl at that enormous moon?

Nell: You know it’s a myth that wolves howl at the moon?

Me: Really?

Nell: Yes, and Rupert is not a howling sort of wolf.

Me: No. Sorry.
