Cuddles with Dave

Nell: We’re going to have to do something about David.

Me: Why?

Nell: There we were, deep in discussion with Shel after a lovely lunch of roast beef with all the trimmings.

Me: Poppy would have approved.

Nell: She did. She said it wasn’t quite up to her standards but it was a jolly good effort.

Me: That’s a compliment.

Nell: Now stop interrupting, where was I?

Me: Talking about our post lunch chat with Shel.

Nell: Yes, there we were when David climbs onto his lap.

Me: I know. It was adorable.

Nell: I mean, who does that?

Me: Dave does. Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: You can’t climb on top of someone in the middle of a meeting.

Me: It wasn’t a meeting. It was a gentle chat.

Nell: It’s unacceptable.

Me: Shel needed cuddles and Dave was there to offer them.

Nell: It looked the other way around to me.

Me: Did you see Shel’s face? He loved it.

Nell: Well, I think David was far too forward.

Me: I think he was just right.

Nell: I told him to get off.

Me: I know you did.

Nell: And he completely ignored me.

Me: He probably didn’t hear you. He was so caught up in the moment.

Nell: Nonsense. He knew exactly what he was doing.

Me: Shel wants us to keep the fundraising for the animation going until December.

Nell: Good.

Me: Just to see if there are any more people willing to donate.

Nell: And then?

Me: We shall see what we shall see.

Nell: Quite. I’m confident we are going to find a way to do this you know.

Me: I really hope so.

Nell: I’m not sure David’s behaviour helped.

Me: That’s where you’re wrong. It was exactly what was needed. Sorry.
