Have you seen the cat? I had him locked in our room while the guests were here and now he’s not there…
Are you sure? Have you checked our closets? You know he likes to hide in there sometimes.
Yeah, I checked. I can’t find him anywhere.
He probably wiggled out somehow and is hiding somewhere else in the house.
Yeah, probably. Will you help me look? I’ll just worry until we find him.
Yeah, of course. I’ll look downstairs.
Hey, how are you?
Ehh, I’m alright.
Is everything okay?
Yeah...it’s just...I forgot my mom’s birthday last week and I know she was sad about it. I don’t know how to make it up to her.
Well you should definitely apologize, and maybe do something really nice for her to make it up. I can’t believe you forgot your mom’s birthday though. No wonder you have a bad conscience.
So what ever happened with those new tablets you ordered? Did they work out?
No, it’s a huge mess. There were all sorts of problems setting them up to begin with, and then there was a security breach and customers’ credit card information was leaked. It’s a nightmare.
Did you call the company? Are you getting a refund at least?
Yeah, our people have been on the phone with their people for about a week now, and it’s getting sorted out.

Did you set the garbage out?
No, I thought you were going to do it.
I couldn’t do it - I had to rush into the clinic last night. Couldn’t you see it needed to be done??
Well you always do it, so I didn’t think about it.
Jeez, do I have to do everything myself??
What do you mean?? Who does all the cooking then!?
Well, who does all the cleaning?!
