VOD:              What about that rain this afternoon?


Terry:              A real pain, I was planning to have some friends over, sure messed me up!


VOD:              Well you were complaining about the hot weather yesterday, I thought you might appreciate the rain to cool things off.


Terry:              Well that’s the way things go, one day so hot that a guy, like, cooks, next day can’t do anything on account of rain!


VOD:              Sorry, son, but with all the fun things you have to work and play with, I didn’t think it would matter, a little rain, or some heat.


Terry:              Well, thing is there’s like no happy medium it seems. And I need some new games, maybe a new four-wheeler.


VOD:              But Terry, I thought you had a four-wheeler.


Terry, mocking:         
Yeh, a 350cc. No one drives a 350cc anymore; it's all like 750 and bigger.


VOD:              Sorry, I thought you liked it when I got it for you . . .


Terry:              Oh, it's OK, for a smaller unit, and I appreciate all you did, but . .


VOD:              Did you have a good time with Tracy? I suggested that she go over and spend some time with you.


Terry:              Dad, Tracy is like so fifties!


VOD:              “Fifties”?


Terry:              Right outta touch.


VOD:              Sorry, I . . .


Terry:              Like I say Dad, it's not that I am complaining, it's just . . .


VOD:                          Really? You sound a lot like I do when I am complaining.


Terry:              Look Dad, I am kinda busy right now, maybe we could . . .


VOD:              Sorry, didn’t mean to interfere, I . . .


Terry:              Later Dad, OK?


VOD:              Sure, later Terry.
