Does the Gym Accept Bears?

Me: The stuffed tiger looks ready to pounce. If I didn’t know it was stuffed I’d be quite worried.

Nell: Never mind that. What on earth are you wearing?

Me: A track suit.

Nell: It’s Monday morning.

Me: I know.

Nell: David is shocked.

Me: I can see he is. Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy. Imagine if he knew I had a swimming costume on underneath.

Nell: Do you?

Me: Yes.

Nell: Why?

Me: I’ve joined the gym and this morning is my first aqua aerobics class.

Nell: Excuse me?

Me: The past year has been a bit of a nightmare for me health wise so I’ve decided to try and do something about it.

Nell: Isn’t the walking enough?

Me: No.

Nell: Well, good for you.

Me: Thank you.

Nell: Does the gym accept bears?

Me: I’m not sure. Why?

Nell: Maybe it would do Herr Hoffmann good to splash about in a swimming pool. He fell asleep in his cereal this morning.

Me: I’m sure Princess wouldn’t mind him sharing her pool.

Nell: True.

Me: Or Knitwear Wolf could take him down to the sea on his motorbike?

Nell: The main beach isn’t open until 1st October.

Me: That’s just dogs. Remember? Wolves and bears are allowed.

Nell: Oh yes.

Me: And lions.

Nell: Don’t start complaining about Lionel King again. It was just an idea to do the filming on the beach.

Me: He was trying to sabotage Dave.

Nell: Well, it didn’t work. Filming has been delayed until everyone is back on the beach.

Me: What you see in that lion is beyond me.

Nell: Don’t forget to drink lots of water. It’s important to keep hydrated.

Me: You’re ignoring me again.

Nell: Shouldn’t you be going? You don’t want to be late.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
