Me: Oh no. We forgot Toby’s birthday. He turned one yesterday.
Nell: No need to worry. Toby had a marvellous day with Tony and Sue.
Me: I remember when he was just a puppy.
Nell: Well, now he’s a dashing young Labrador who’s happy about his Uncle David’s engagement.
Me: Talking of engagements, did I see a pair of turtle doves outside?
Nell: You mean Kylie and Jason? Those two always turn up at the merest hint of romance.
Me: Do they?
Nell: Yes. I expect we’re going to have to listen to them singing that song all day now.
Me: ‘Especially For You’?
Nell: No. ‘Feathery We Coo’.
Me: That doesn’t even make sense.
Nell: It’s a huge hit and Malcolm loves it.
Me: Does he?
Nell: Yes, they sang it at his wedding to Susan.
Me: Have we got any other music arranged?
Nell: The Welsh Corgi Choir will be performing tomorrow at a love themed Sunday Songs.
Nell: And apparently someone rather extraordinary will be performing this evening.
Me: I hope it’s Dave.
Nell: David hasn’t stopped singing since Sally said ‘Yes’. Anyway, it’s someone quite unexpected.
Me: Maybe it’s Lady Baba the singing sheep?
Nell: No, she’s on tour.
Me: Or The Rolling Bones?
Nell: Don’t be silly. They only do stadiums.
Me: Oh Nell. Look at the line-up. ‘George Jones the country singing opossum.’
Nell: Oliver asked him to fly over. He must have agreed.
Me: That’s not the unexpected bit.
Nell: ‘Supporting Act: Poppy Lee Martin and her Line Dancing Llamas.’
Me: That must be why she’s out in the field.
Nell: Are those cowboy boots?
Nell: And is that a ten gallon hat?
Me: It certainly is.
Nell: Did Poppy just lasso a llama?
Me: I’m afraid so. Sorry.
