Hey, could you throw in a load of laundry for me really quick?
I have class in ten minutes and I need my uniform for work tonight.
Uhh...no, not really.
...why not? You’re not doing anything, are you?
Well, no, but...well, it sounds a little ridiculous, but I never learned how to do laundry.
...what? What do you mean?
Well, no one ever showed me how…
Don’t look at me like that!
Okay, well, I have to go right now, but we’re definitely continuing this later.
Where’s Jake??? He ate the rest of my pizza and I had a note on it that specifically said it was mine.
How do you know it was him?

Jake was gone at football camp all day yesterday.
Fine. Then Dad must’ve eaten it. Unbelievable.
Hey, I haven’t seen you since the accident. How are you holding up??
Eh, I’m okay. I haven’t been able to move around very much though, which is irritating.
I start physical therapy next week.
Oh, good. It’ll be good to move around a bit again.
Yeah, it’ll give me something to start working toward again too.
