|Johanna:||Hi Natalia, are you ready to get started on your deck? Hey! What happened to you?|
|Natalia:||Well, I was reaching for something high in my cupboard and I slipped. I fell like a tonne of bricks. I am in so much pain!|
|Johanna:||I can see that! That’s quite a gash you have on your leg!|
|Natalia:||I’ll be ok. Luckily I fell back on this chair, so it broke my fall a little bit.|
|Johanna:||I better give you a ride to the walk-in-clinic.|
|Natalia:||No, that’s ok Johanna, I think I can make it.|
|Johanna:||Maybe you can, but don’t you that pride comes before a fall? Who knows what other damage you might have done to your leg? I insist on giving you a ride.|
|Natalia:||But, Johanna, you have so many things to do! What about your fence? I don’t want you to fall behind on your tasks!|
|Johanna:||I know we had things to do today, but I don’t mind if I have to fall short of my goals. This is so much more important! We can make it up when you are feeling better.|
|Natalia:||Ok, I can see there is no point in arguing, but I insist that I buy you lunch on|
the way back from the clinic.
|Johanna:||Ok, that’s a deal I can live with!|
