Hey, I haven’t seen you since the funeral. How are you doing?
Oh, you know. It’s hard and some days are better than others, but I’m slowly coming to terms with it.
Yeah...I know they always say it just takes time, but I think it’s really true.
Yeah, I know….I’ll be okay.
What are your plans for the summer?
Well, I haven’t decided yet. I got offered a summer job at the law office, so I could stay and do that. But one of my friends is traveling around southeast Asia for the summer and he wants me to come with, so there’s that option too.
How is that even a choice? You have to go to Asia!
Yeah, but the law office job is really good experience.
Who cares?! Throw caution to the wind and go travel! You won’t get that opportunity again!

So, we have everything ready to leave on Friday?
Yeah, I think so. Do you know if we need our passports to cross the American-Canadian border though? I can’t remember…
Hmm...I feel like they changed that recently, but I’m not completely sure either.
We better just play it safe and take our passports then.

Did you know the theater is going out of business??
No, I had no idea. I thought they were doing well. It always seemed like they had plenty of business.
Yeah, I don’t know. Last year they raised ticket prices and cut hours, but I guess it still wasn’t enough.
