Old Friends Contact Each Other

(Scene: On the phone)

W: Hello?

M: Hey, Naomi.

W: Bill?

M: Yes! How's it going? I was just thinking: we haven't spoken for ages!

W: Great to hear from you, too, Bill!!!! I'm going good. What's new with you?

M: Oh, you know...study, keeping warm. Just had a great break over the winter holidays.

W: Yeah?

M: Yeah, went south down to Yakushima and Okinawa. Very beautiful...and much warmer than here!!!!

W: Sounds good.

M: I've put some photos up. You should check 'em out.

W: I will, for sure. Make sure you're not getting yourself into any mischief with the girls!

M: Oh, you know me: I only like you! So, do you reckon you might come and visit some time in the near future?

W: Could do, could do. Depends how the work situation is looking, but I definitely wanna try and sort something out.

M: OK, I'd love to see you here, but don't stress about it. I understand if you can't afford it…

W: Oh, it's OK. Where there's a will there's a way!

M: Alright then! I really can't think of anyone I'd rather go to Tokyo Disneyland with!

W: Exactly.

M: It's a date, then! So, when do you think we can meet up?
