ML: It is a lazy wind that is blowing under that door.
GT: Pardon! - I have never heard that before.
ML: Oh it is something that Leo and Leone taught me last year when they visited.
The wind is so lazy - it blows through you and not round you.
GT: You are right the wind is beginning to chill my bones too. But I am much older than you, Mai Ling, and feel the cold more than I did as a younger woman.
ML: I too am getting older..another year on...my, how time flies...
GT: Isn't that what Leo called "Tempus Fugit?"
ML: Fancy learning Latin at our age! You know, it really was a good idea having those children from the International School stay with the youngsters. Is anything happening this time around?
GT: No, although Little Ming and Little Fung were invited back by Leo and Leone to spend some time at the school.
ML: I think I remember them going on that trip but the details of their escapades are vague.
GT: Wouldn't it have been wonderful if they could have gone back to England with Leo and Leone. They left China last Saturday.
ML: Oh, for the opportunity to see another country, to see how other people live...
GT: If only we had had those chances to travel... Little Ming and Little Fung have done much, much more than we have ever done.
ML: That is a fact! That pair have quite an interesting time of it!
GT: Not like when you were a girl....
ML: Now, you are laughing at me Granma T. Although younger than you, I feel more in keeping with your generation ...
GT: And here I am thinking of you as a really modern miss!
ML: You are too kind, but just think how long I have worked here!
GT: Perhaps I had better not. I just know that we couldn't run the business without you. And it was you that insisted we modernise. Oh what was that phrase of Leone's?
ML: We have to GET WITH IT!
GT: That's right.. I am going to GET us a drink of tea, can you GET those figures finished those figures without me?
ML: No problem... I will also leave a note for Wai Ping to put a strip on the bottom of that door. We might as well as well have comfort as we get older....
