Matt What are you doing? Do you want any help?
Sarah Do you think this top goes with this skirt?
Matt You don’t need to dress up for dinner at home, sweetheart.
Sarah No, no. I’m trying to figure out what to wear for the reunion.
Matt Isn't that next week? You can do it later. Dinner’s getting cold.
Sarah It won’t take long. So what do you think?
Matt You look perfect.
Sarah You’re just saying that.
Matt No, I’m not.
Sarah Oh, no! A button’s just come off. I bought this today. Do you think I should take it back?
Matt You can sew the button back on, can’t you?
Sarah I guess. Do you think it’s too long, though?
Matt No. You look good in it. But take it off for now. You don’t want to spoil it while you’re eating.
Sarah Do you think they can take it up a bit? Or shall I just return it?
Matt It’s fine as it is. It’s just the right length to show off your new tattoo on your ankle. Come on. Let’s have dinner. I made you your favourite.
Sarah OK. But I’m after an elegant look. Maybe I should wear this maxi skirt instead and I’ll return this one? I can get my money back, can’t I?
Matt You don’t really like the skirt, do you?
Sarah Not really. I was thinking about the reunion and I saw it in the window and I thought it was perfect. But I guess it was an impulse buy, really.
Matt Don’t worry. You should be able to return it. I’ll come to the shop with you, if you want.
Sarah Thank you, Matt.
