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!
