Making the Most of the Sunshine

Me: Why are you giving me one of your looks?

Nell: You know perfectly well.

Me: I don’t.

Nell: All you had to do was rest.

Me: I am.

Nell: What part of rest includes setting the dishwasher on fire?

Me: I just turned it on.

Nell: You’ve only been home a day and you’re already destroying the kitchen.

Me: I didn’t mean to.

Nell: Malcolm has had to take the day off with mild anxiety.

Me: Can you get the day off for that?

Nell: Nobody needs a nervous flamingo.

Me: True.

Nell: All I can say is thank goodness for Manuel’s tentacles.

Me: I’m not sure how to respond to that.

Nell: He’s going to have to do all the washing up as well as making pastry for the pasties.

Me: Can’t we have something else?

Nell: Poppy’s in talks with John the Doberman about supplying Starbarks and he needs some samples.

Me: They’re the perfect lunch.

Nell: Yes. The crew have been enjoying them.

Me: What crew?

Nell: Auditions for ‘Raiders of the Lost Bark’ are still going on, you know.

Me: Right.

Nell: Have you shared the link to the fundraiser for the animation series?

Me: Not for a while.

Nell: We have new followers every day and they won’t know about it.

Me: Here it is: https://gofund.me/547e2a25. Please donate if you can. You will be helping us make a dream come true.

Nell: You’ve obviously been tiring Harriet out. Look at the state of her. She’s fallen asleep on David’s toy.

Me: Dave doesn’t seem worried.

Nell: He’s making the most of the sunshine.

Me: That’s exactly what we should be doing.

Nell: What?

Me: We need to follow Dave’s example.

Nell: Eating pasties by mistake and crashing out on the carpet?

Me: No. Sorry.
