Dave is Resting and Sara Makes a Mistake

Me: I’m glad to see Dave is resting.

Nell: Harriet insisted. She’s watching over him while he sleeps.

Me: Bless her.

Nell: I don’t know why the Stuffed Tiger has to be there too.

Me: It’s where it sits.

Nell: It’s no use to anyone.

Me: I thought you told me I should cuddle it instead of Dave.

Nell: I did. David was most annoyed. He says Chief Cuddling Officer is a more important job to him than being Mayor of Kingsbridge.

Me: Except he isn’t the mayor.

Nell: Moving on, we need to discuss your unfortunate mistake.

Me: Which one?

Nell: Very funny. Did you, or did you not, get confused about the date of your son- in-law’s birthday?

Me: Yes. That was me.

Nell: And did you go on the Family chat group yesterday and congratulate him causing everyone else to think they had made a mistake and go on there too?

Me: I did.

Nell: In fact the birthday wishes kept pouring in until Alice was forced to tell everyone it wasn’t Andre’s birthday at all.

Me: I knew his birthday was at the end of May.

Nell: May has 31 days. Have you wished him a Happy Birthday today?

Me: Yes. I jolly well hope I’ve got the right day now.

Nell: Don’t we all. Poppy made a cake.

Me: He’s in Germany.

Nell: We can still eat cake.

Me: True.

Nell: Talking of Poppy we had some good news from the vets about her Cushing’s Disease.

Me: Yes. She’s responding really well to the low dose of tablets and her levels are all in the normal range.

Nell: We should celebrate with a slice of cake.

Me: Isn’t it a bit early?

Nell: It’s never too early for cake, unlike birthday wishes.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
