Me: We need to sign up for our next session of tennis classes. One of us should swing by the tennis center on the way home from work on Tuesday.
Peter: I can do it.
Me: Great! Thanks. I’ll reimburse you for yours [we had already agreed to treat each other to the tennis lessons, as our Christmas gifts to each other].
Peter: Right. By the way, I need to transfer the money to you from my account, for that textbook I just sold for you on Amazon.
Me: Come to think of it, the price of that textbook is about the price of the tennis class. Just call it a wash.
Peter: That’s convenient!
Me: So, how ’bout celebrating with a Thin Mint? [Peter and I both love Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies—so much so that I bought him several boxes for Christmas, which he kindly shares with me. ;-) ]
Peter: Great idea! Cheers!
