Pinch, Punch, First of the Month

Me: ‘Pinch punch, first of the month.’

Nell: Stop that.

Me: ‘White rabbits, no return.‘

Nell: That’s what you think.

Me: Ouch.

Nell: ‘A kick and a flick for being so quick.’

Me: You kicked me.

Nell: It’s the Devon way.

Me: No, it isn’t.

Nell: Look it up if you don’t believe me.

Me: Well, hopefully we’ll have good luck for the next four weeks.

Nell: Yes. Now, it is the first of March today.

Me: I know.

Nell: So, it’s time to remind everyone that they can support your daily writing by buying you a cup of Earl Grey on the buymeacoffee website.

Me: I don’t like asking, Nell.

Nell: You publish a story every day. The link to the website is on the Conversations with Nell page on Facebook, or in your bio on Instagram.

Me: It’s a pinned post.

Nell: And also here https://www.buymeacoffee.com/saramartin

Me: I’d be most grateful for any support you can give me.

Nell: Yes, we all would. Why are you up and dressed, by the way?

Me: I have my Wednesday Writers workshop this morning.

Nell: How lovely. I might join you.

Me: You’ll have to keep quiet.

Nell: Excuse me?

Me: You’re not registered.

Nell: I most certainly am. I have been registered with The Kennel Club since birth.

Me: I didn’t mean that kind of registered.

Nell: I’m a pedigree Labrador. Oxfordshire born and bred.

Me: I meant registered for the workshop.

Nell: Oh, I see. They won’t mind.

Me: You can only listen quietly. No barking or grumbling.

Nell: As if.

Me: I know what you’re like. If you’re hungry, or bored, or wanting attention, you grumble.

Nell: Nonsense.

Me: In fact you’re grumbling now.

Nell: Of course I am. You just pinched and punched me.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
