I hang up and watch the vlog. I see a very upset and clearly emotional me saying things I really mean but I do sound a bit like a teacher. I’m also so involved in what I’m saying that I completely fail to notice Dave, who has slinked up behind me and spotted Grandad’s wading bird calendar lying on the bench.
Dave doesn’t like birds. And she really doesn’t like ringed plovers. Even paper ones.
When she spots the ringed plover, Dave decides to lift herself up on two legs and dance hypnotically from side to side. She’s better that the “Thriller” cat and looks like she’s been trained by the world’s best choreographers. She then starts diving up and down on top of the plover, licking, head-butting it and twizzling her bum on it.
This one is on my kindle, so I went to the view with the scrollbar, held the marker, did a swipe move, and let it go. It ended on page 185!
“Honestly… he’s boring. I know I kept saying it wasn’t about him being a prince… but that’s not true. If he’d just been any old hot guy, I probably would have lost interest after three weeks. Although he is a dynamite kisser, so maybe not.”
