Syd:Hi, Len! How are you doing? How is your family?
Len:Hi, Syd! I’m doing great!
Syd:But, you look concerned. Is everything all right?
Len:Well, it’s my son. He wants to drop out of school. We had an argument last night and I told him to keep his shirt on and give it a try for another year at the university. He says he is simply done, and he is ready to hang up his boots and that going to school is not for him. He wants to find a job.
Syd:But what about his passion for architecture? I remember the last project he did. His skyscraper model knocked my socks off! He is not going to be an architect, is he?
Len:That’s the thing. He still likes the idea, but he wants to be self-sufficient and start earning income right away! I keep telling him that without skills, he would be on a shoestring forever.
Syd:I understand. I worry for my children, too. By the way, this dress suits you very well!
Len:Thank you! I tried it on and it fit me like a glove. It’s my favourite colour, too.
Syd:I like red on you! Well, I better be going. I hope to see you soon!
Len:Me too! Have a good evening!
