Surveying the room he gave a noncommittal ‘Nice.’ Pursing her lips, she clearly didn’t buy his bullshit. With a sigh he followed up, ‘It’s a little impersonal,’
‘It’s clean and organised. I know these are two unfamiliar concepts to you,’ she said, laying her purse down on side.
‘It’s just my house is homely,’ he started. ‘You know pictures of family and friends, some souvenirs,’

‘Does salad count as eating?’ he asked, moving over to the kitchen.
‘Yes, it’s considered quite healthy actually,’
‘Got any beer?’ he asked, already knowing the answer.
‘I have red wine.’ Usually he would have said no, but he thought any alcohol would help him with this situation, so he nodded his head.
