|Jacquie:||Hey, long time, no see! How was your trip?|
|Melanie:||Hi, Jacquie, good to see you, too. The trip went well, for the most part…|
|Jacquie:||Why, was there anything wrong?|
|Melanie:||Well, my boss gave me the green light with my vacation pretty late, so I had little time to plan it all out.|
|Jacquie:||No way, I thought you had it all booked in advance!|
|Melanie:||Not really, we had no idea which hotel would be best, so we just took pot luck with the first one on the list.|
|Jacquie:||Oh, and did turn out ok?|
|Melanie:||It was nice and clean, but quite far from the beach.|
|Jacquie:||That’s tough luck, I guess, especially with a baby.|
|Melanie:||Yeah, the baby didn’t like the warm climate much, but she seemed to get tired more and slept a lot, so there was a silver lining to it.|
|Jacquie:||Well, that’s good news!|
|Melanie:||It was a sweet escape anyway… Now I am back to work and I have to get a lot done.|
|Jacquie:||Good luck with that! I think you’ll catch up in no time!|
