Episode 44: A free lunch

Tim: That food was delicious!

Mrs Hall: It took ages to come but yes, absolutely scrummy. Ready for afters?

Tim: Thank you.

Mrs Hall: Go on, open it.

Tim: World Cup tickets! How can I ever thank you Mrs Hall?

Mrs Hall: Well you can start by dropping the formality. Please, call me Janet.

Tim: Alright ... Janet.

Mrs Hall: Much better. Now, my husband's away on business next month. So we'll do lunch again then.

Tim: Your husband?

Mrs Hall: Well where did you think those corporate tickets came from? Yes, he's good for some things but quite dreadful for others - like decent lunch company.

Tim: I'm not sure if I'm free. Let me check the rota first.
