|Natalia:||I’m in my husband’s bad books now because I have deleted some old folders on our computer, which I thought he didn’t need…|
|Len:||Oh, boy, sorry to hear that, but if it makes it any better – Jack and I have been living a cat-and-dog life for years…|
|Natalia:||I hear you! Sometimes, it seems to me Ben is just waiting to pick a fight over something that doesn’t even make sense to me. The other day he was complaining that I go out too much with my girlfriends. And I know it’s only because his friends cancelled a golf party last weekend.|
|Len:||Oh, Jack can easily make a mountain out of a molehill. For example, when I do laundry, he always makes it a problem! I have to fight to get his dirty T-shirts into the washing machine.|
|Natalia:||Well, now that I am at odds with Ben, we have no plans for the weekend. How about you two come over for dinner?|
|Len:||I think first you’ll need to make it up to him for the deleted files!|
|Natalia:||I’ll figure something out!|
