Sunday Contemplations

Me: You’re very beautiful Nell, especially when you’re lost in thought like that.

Nell: Thank you.

Me: I suppose Sunday is the time to think about things. A day of contemplation.

Nell: I was enjoying the smell of bacon cooking if you must know.

Me: I’ve been doing some thinking too.

Nell: Here we go.

Me: Looking back on my life.

Nell: You do this every year when it comes to your birthday.

Me: I know. When I was younger 64 seemed so old.

Nell: The Beatles would agree with you.

Me: Exactly. ‘Will you still need me? Will you still feed me?’

Nell: No. I shall give David your bacon sandwich if you don’t stop. You need to look forward.

Me: You’re right.

Nell: Sunday Songs today is dedicated to you, by the way.

Me: How lovely.

Nell: The Welsh Corgi Choir will be singing lots of Golden Oldies with hits from your past.

Me: I thought you said I wasn’t supposed to look back.

Nell: You may have noticed their Afghan coats.

Me: I did.

Nell: The Cat managed to source them in very short and wide.

Me: What are you implying?

Nell: Corgis are so difficult to dress. It’s the shortness of the leg.

Me: I know how they feel. Why are the llamas in lycra?

Nell: They insisted on catsuits in celebration of your David Bowie phase.

Me: I hope they don’t freeze.

Nell: They’ve got their coats on underneath.

Me: Of course.

Nell: But before the performance begins let’s enjoy our bacon sandwiches in front of the fire with a nice cup of Earl Grey.

Me: Sounds perfect.

Nell: We can discuss the family’s visit in March. It’s not that far away now. You have so much to look forward to.

Me: You’re right. Sorry.
