4. How are you feeling now?
Joseph tells Ralph about the time he was mugged.
Joseph: Did I ever tell you about the
time I was mugged?
Ralph: No. When was that?
Joseph: It was about two years ago now. I’d just got money out of the ATM, when four guys came up to me and told me to hand over the cash I’d just withdrawn.
Ralph: What did you do?
Joseph: I gave them the money, of course. I thought they would
beat me up if I didn’t. They ran off as soon as I handed it over. I still can’t use a cash machine without thinking about it.
Ralph: I can imagine. That’s awful! Joseph: How are you feeling now?
Are you hungry?
Ralph: No, not really. I wouldn’t mind a beer, but I didn’t buy any in the end. I forgot.
Joseph: I’m not surprised.
