Happy Halloween (sorry for the puns)

Me: Happy Howl-oween Nell.

Nell: I see you’ve started already. Why aren’t you wearing your hat?

Me: I’ll put it on later. Yours is rather impressive.

Nell: Not too much?

Me: Never. Go big or gourd home is my motto.

Nell: Give me strength.

Me: Look at my Big Brave Beautiful Boy in his feathered hat. Isn’t he looking absolutely gourd-geous?

Nell: Good grief.

Me: And Harriet’s hat is quite eerie-sistible.

Nell: You simply can’t stop doing this, can you?

Me: Are all these Halloween puns driving you batty?

Nell: You could say that.

Me: I’m way ahead of the carve today.

Nell: Just stop.

Me: I will soon.

Nell; Thank goodness for that. It’s bad enough trying to get around the house in a huge tasseled sombrero.

Me: Gourd to see Herr Hoffmann is joining in.

Nell: That’s his normal chef’s hat.

Me: Oh, fangs for pointing that out.

Nell: I give up.

Me: You know me. Pumpkin out puns like it’s nobody’s business.

Nell: Somebody bring me a cup of Earl Grey, please.

Me: I suppose tea is better than boos. See what I did there?

Nell: Are you ever going to stop?

Me: It’s only once a year, Nell.

Nell: I know but it’s impossible to have a decent conversation with you. I’m leaving.

Me: Don’t go. Halloween’s not the same if I can’t be witch you.

Nell: Here we go again.

Me: I’ll stop now.

Nell: I’ll stay if you let me drink my tea in peace.

Me: I will.

Nell: Good.

Me: But be scareful. It might be quite hot.

Nell: What did you just say?

Me: Nothing. How do you take your tea, by the way?

Nell: With lemon.

Me: Not scream and sugar?

Nell: You can’t help yourself, can you?

Me: No. Sorry.
