Bob: I am well. Thanks for asking.
Alec: Good to hear. You are looking trimmer these days.
Bob: Yea well I have been eating less.
Alec: Good idea. And I see you are sporting a new hair style.
Bob: Yes my daughter has started cutting hair.
Alec: Really. Isn’t she only 11?
Bob: Sure but we encourage our kids to keep expanding their skill set. Why just the other night we had our 12-year-old make dinner.
Alec: Really and how did that turn out.
Bob: Well she really didn’t understand that large flames would trigger the fire sprinkler system.
Alec: Oh my, that sounds like it didn’t turn out so well.
Bob: The real issue is if our homeowners insurance will pay to have the house rebuilt.
Alec: That is why we have insurance.
Bob: Yea but only if you are current on your payments.
Alec: So it sounds like you skipped the homemade meal.
Bob: Oh it just gave us a good reason to go out to eat.
Alec: Good plan. So where did you go?
Bob: Well the first place we usually go had unexpectedtly gone out of business. So we drove across town to our favorite all-you-can eat place.
Alec: Bet that filled you all up.
Bob: Well our credit card was declined when we got to the cashier. But we were able to snack on the stuff on our trays before we found out.
Alec: So it sounds like things are a little challenging right now.
Bob: Yeah I guess so. Do you happen to have $100 I could borrow?
