Me: You know I was taking a photo of Dave?
Me: You photobombed the first one so I had to take it again.
Nell: I did no such thing.
Me: Why are you in the photo then?
Nell: I was simply checking you were doing the job properly.
Me: It was supposed to be of Dave on his own and there you are in the background with a grumpy face.
Nell: My face wasn’t grumpy. It was concerned.
Nell: The photo needs to be just right. David is the Mayor of Kingsbridge and needs it for his campaign.
Me: What campaign?
Nell: To remain as Mayor. Do keep up.
Me: I’m not even going to try and remind you he isn’t the Mayor because you simply won’t listen.
Nell: Stephen Seagull took out a double page spread in the Growl on Sunday so we’re going to have to do the same.
Me: Are you part of Dave’s campaign now?
Nell: What do you mean ‘now’? I’ve always been on David’s team.
Me: We’re all on Dave’s team.
Nell: I’m not so sure.
Nell: Where are the photos of his Deputy Mayors?
Me: His what?
Nell: Henry and Horst. Where are their photos?
Me: I didn’t know I was supposed to be taking any.
Nell: Why do you think they’re wearing bow ties?
Me: I thought it was just a woodlouse thing.
Nell: The Cat thinks we’re missing a trick by not featuring the insect population.
Me: I didn’t know they had a vote.
Nell: Everyone has a vote. How do you think Henry and Horst were elected?
Me: I thought Dave chose them as his deputies.
Nell: You mean as part of his duties as Mayor of Kingsbridge?
Me: I suppose I do. Sorry.
