One nice afternoon, Rob took the boys outside to play. While he was outside, he noticed Bill coming out with his kids. Rob walked over to Bill’s house.
“So Bill,” Rob begins. “How are you doing?”
“Great, Rob.” Bill replied. “How are things with you?”
“Can’t complain. Can’t complain.” Rob said. “Hey, did you take part in The Big Green Egg Festival this past weekend?”
“Actually, Rob, I did. I’ll go get a couple of beers, and I’ll tell you all about it.”
“Great! I’ll take an Oktoberfest, please.”
“You got it.”
Moments later, Bill returns with two cold beers. He begins to tell Rob all about the Egg-fest. Two hours (and two more beers) later, Betty and Veronica emerge from the house.
“Hey guys!” The gals yell in unison, “Where are the kids?”
The guys look at each other, shrug their shoulders and say, “They’re around here somewhere.”
One nice afternoon, Betty takes her kids outside to play. She notices Veronica is already out with her kids, so she joins her in the driveway.
“Hi, Veronica.” Betty says with smile. “How are you?”
“I’m good, thanks.” Veronica says. “Adam! Stay out of the mud, please!”
“Where is Bill?”
“Oh, he’s inside resting. And, Rob? Stephanie! Leave the cat alone!”
“Did I tell you my Auntie was coming in town from England?” Betty asks.
“No. When will she be in town?” Veronica responds.
“Well, it looks like -” Betty stops short, “David! Don’t throw rocks at your sister!”
She continues, “It looks like she’ll arrive -” Veronica cuts her off, “Oh. Hang on a second – Adam! Stop digging around Mr. Smith’s yard.”
“Sorry.” Veronica says.
“She’ll arrive later this week. She has her last show in London on Tuesday, and she’ll – Stephanie! Quit pulling the cat’s tail!”
“Her show?” Veronica inquires. “Is she an actress?”
“Yes. She’s been – “David! What did I say about the rocks?”
“Adam! Get out of the street! There is a car coming!”
“Stephanie, did you wet your pants?”
“Scott! Don’t run or you’re going to – SCOTT! Are you OK?”
“Sorry, Veronica. We need to cut this short. Maybe we can try again tomorrow?”
Betty and Veronica head back inside with the kids. Bill greets Betty by asking “How is Veronica doing? Did you gals have a nice conversation?”
