My cousin Freddy is currently enjoying a two week break in Jamaica. He’s staying at the same hotel where I stayed in May. My friend who works at the hotel mentioned that he’d had a chat with my cousin and his girlfriend.
Later on I had the following conversation with my mum:
PJ: I didn’t know that Lydia had gone to Jamaica with Freddy.
Mum: She hasn’t.
PJ: Oh. I see. (looking around in a shifty manner)
PJ: Well, Patrick said that Freddy introduced him to his girlfriend last night…
Mum: Okay… (shaking her head in comprehension) Well, I don’t know anything about this business.
PJ: (nodding my head) Yeah, we don’t know anything about it. And we never had this conversation.
