Oh David

Nell: We need to talk about David’s behaviour. He’s obviously not done enough thinking about The Error of His Ways.

Me: He seems to be giving it a good go this morning.

Nell: That’s because I had to talk to him sternly at Morning Thoughts.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: Jonathan and Poppy were enjoying the yellow chair.

Me: Yes. They were both lost in thought.

Nell: Jonathan was making up stories with you and Poppy was going over the menus for the week.

Me: Yes.

Nell: When David climbed on to the chair.

Me: I think he simply wanted affection. Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: Jonathan had to stand up.

Me: I know.

Nell: David can’t just do that.

Me: He sort of did.

Nell: And he didn’t even have anything useful to contribute.

Me: That’s a bit harsh.

Nell: All he suggested was bacon sandwiches.

Me: They’re tasty.

Nell: They’re on the menu already. Poppy is trying to think of something new.

Me: Sometimes tried and trusted is better.

Nell: And as for storylines, nobody can think of anything with a large animal climbing on top of them.

Me: It is difficult.

Nell: Jonathan wasn’t best pleased.

Me: He wasn’t. Although it did give me an idea for a story.

Nell: What?

Me: Well, it must be hard to be so big when you think you’re small.

Nell: David doesn’t think he’s small.

Me: He does sometimes. And Poppy is the opposite.

Nell: What do you mean?

Me: She thinks she’s big. She doesn’t see herself as small at all.

Nell: She isn’t. The only thing small about Poppy is her body.

Me: And Dave is actually a little puppy at heart.

Nell: Tell that to Jonathan. He was the one who got climbed on.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
