The Sword Awareness Course Begins and David is feeling Abandoned

Nell: Why do you keep calling my iBone? The Sword Awareness Course is just about to begin and all phones are supposed to be switched off.

Me: Dave asked me to. He’s feeling all lost and abandoned. Poor darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy. You should see his little face.

Nell: Tell David to stop that right now. He’s just attention seeking.

Me: He had a cold breakfast, Nell.

Nell: Don’t talk to me about cold. Zooming up the M5 in a motorbike sidecar with just a poncho for protection is not exactly first class travel you know.

Me: He’s missing you all terribly.

Nell: We only left a few hours ago and we’re coming back this evening. All being well.

Me: What do you mean by that?

Nell: Let’s just say there are a few too many swords around for my liking.

Me: Are there any big cats?

Nell: A couple of rather large Maine Coons are running the course and some of the Siamese could do with losing a little weight but most seem fairly normal sized. Why?

Me: I wondered if a certain lion might be involved.

Nell: Honestly, you’re obsessed with Lionel King.

Me: I know what he’s like, Nell. He’s a very bad lion.

Nell: Just calm down. Rupert is here with me. Nothing is going to happen.

Me: How’s Poppy?

Nell: She made quite an impression when she arrived in her pirate’s hat and cloak.

Me: I thought she might.

Nell: She wasn’t the only one wearing a hat, however.

Me: Really?

Nell: An extremely feisty Dachshund calling herself Miss Maple turned up in a tiara.

Me: What did Poppy think about that?

Nell: They are firm friends already.

Me: It takes feistiness to know feistiness.

Nell: That’s what I’m worried about.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
