Lucy was walking her dog in the park one morning when she ran into Roger. She hadn’t seen Roger for years, since they had broken up. They had gone out for only six months back in 2004, but Roger had left her for a resaon she had never discovered.
So, today, when she was walking in the park, she was very surprised to see Roger. “Hi, Roger!” she said.
Roger looked at her and said, “Oh, hi Lucy. It’s been a long time. How are you?”
"Oh, I’m fine. I was just walking my dog in the park.”
"What have you been doing the last few years?”
"Oh, you know. The usual things. I’ve been working, getting married, having children. Normal things that everybody does. And you? What have you been doing?”
"Oh, not much. I’ve been living with my parents this whole time.”
“Are you working?”
“No, I’m not. I’m looking for a job.”
"Well, that’s interesting,” said Lucy.
"Do you want to go get a coffee?" asked Roger.
"No, thanks," said Lucy. “My children are waiting for me at home. I’m going to make lunch. It’s good to see you, though.”
"It’s good to see you, too."
Lucy turned and walked away. Her dog followed her, and Roger watched her until she disappeared among the trees.
