And The New Winner Is …

Nell: Would you try and calm down, please, and eat your breakfast.

Me: I can’t. Chris will be here soon.

Nell: We’ve got plenty of time to get to the station.

Me: I know. I’m just so excited to have everyone here at last.

Nell: Now, you’d better explain what’s happened with the competition.

Me: Yes. I contacted Diana who was really grateful to have won but would like to give the prize to someone else.

Nell: She just wants to support you and for you to keep writing.

Me: Yes. She was very kind.

Nell: So, Alice drew another name.

Me: She did. And the winner is Elizabeth Homewood.

Nell: Congratulations Elizabeth. Please contact Sara as she will need a photo of your dog.

Me: Or cat.

Nell: I beg your pardon?

Me: It’s any animal, Nell.

Nell: Not a cat.

Me: Yes, or a hamster. It really doesn’t matter.

Nell: Anyway, Sara will need information about your animal so she can include it in a story.

Me: Elizabeth is going to be very surprised.

Nell: She is. I think we should run this competition again.

Me: I think you might be right but I’d want to give first, second and third prizes next time.

Nell: You just want everyone to win.

Me: I do. Chris just texted.

Nell: And?

Me: He got through security really quickly and managed to catch an earlier train.

Nell: That’s wonderful.

Me: He’s going to be here really soon.

Nell: Just drink your tea and eat your toast.

Me: I’m too excited to eat.

Nell: I suppose I could help you with that.

Me: How kind.

Nell: We Labradors are always eager to be of service.

Me: Especially when food is involved.

Nell: And what is that supposed to mean?

Me: Nothing. Sorry.
