“Hey Joe! How’s things! I got a new car!
Man, you should see it! It’s the best car
I’ve ever had! All the features! Next week
we’re driving up to the Casino in Niagara!
Man! It’s gonna be a blast! My Uncle Ted’s
gonna come along with us. Haven’t seen him
in years! Did I tell you I won 10 grand on
the Lottery? You should have been there
Man! I swear I musta woke all the neighbours!
It was so funny!”
“Then! To beat everything else I got engaged
to Pam. She was a surprised as I was.
I guess you never really know where life’s
gonna take ya. We’re planning the wedding
for next June.”
“We think we’ll have the reception on a yacht,
that’ll impress em! Then, cruise the lake.
Ever cruised the lake before Joe?”
“We figure about 100 people, maybe more
once Pam gets finished!” Anyways, where ya
been? Haven’t talked to ya in maybe a week,
“Here, right here. I left a few messages. Figured
you were too busy to notice. Saw you talking to
Bob and the others. Look, I’m gonna be very busy
in the next two weeks, maybe even longer.
I have important things to do. Nice talking to ya.
Glad things are going well for you.”
