Campaigning is Awfully Tiring

Nell: Campaigning against Stephen Seagull and the Beefies for his re-election as Mayor of Kingsbridge is definitely taking its toll on David.

Me: He was never mayor in the first place.

Nell: There he was talking through strategies with Kev on the yellow chair when he fell asleep.

Me: Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy. Campaigning can be awfully tiring.

Nell: Kev was stroking his head and his eyes just closed.

Me: Bless him. At least it will all be done and dusted by tomorrow evening.

Nell: Poppy wants David to start the day with a Campaign Breakfast.

Me: How exciting. What is that?

Nell: It’s bacon based.

Me: Obviously.

Nell: With a sausage option.

Me: Small or large?

Nell: No. One or two.

Me: Any eggs?

Nell: The Cat’s insisted on scrambled eggs with smoked salmon but there will be boiled eggs too as they’re David’s favourite.

Me: No croissants?

Nell: Certainly not. After breakfast David will drive to the Town Hall to place his vote.

Me: With Mr Giggles?

Nell: No, he’s taking Lionel and The Fake Barberino. David will travel in Rupert’s sidecar.

Me: Good.

Nell: Although The Cat’s a little worried his cloak might get creased.

Me: Should he be wearing it?

Nell: Of course and his mayoral chain.

Me: It’s a safety chain but never mind.

Nell: After voting and the usual press calls David will return here for a light lunch.

Me: Quiche?

Nell: Don’t be silly. Steak and chips.

Me: That’s not light.

Nell: With a side salad. Voting closes at 4pm so we shall enjoy Poppy’s scones with jam and cream while we wait for them to be counted and the victory party will begin at 6pm.

Me: You seem awfully sure he’s going to win.

Nell: Believing is everything.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
