It Has To Be Just Right

Me: You know I was taking a photo of Dave?

Nell: Yes.

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.

Me: Why?

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.

Me: Why?

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.
