An English dialogue between two friends.
Jane is complaining that she has fallen out with her sister.
Jane: I think I might’ve fallen out with my sister.
Patricia: Really? Why?
Jane: Well, I wrote off her car last week.We’d already had a row earlier in the day, and then I asked if I could borrow her car to pick up the kids from school. Unfortunately, I crashed into the front wall of her house. It was the final straw.
Patricia: Surely not? It’ll all blow over in time, you’ll see. Why don’t you come out with us tonight? By staying at home you could be missing out on a great opportunity to meet new blokes. You only go out once in a blue moon.
Jane: Well as far as meeting a new man is concerned, at forty-three, I think I’ve missed the boat, and I must say, as the nights are drawing in, I can’t really be bothered to go out. Sorry.
