Key to success
Claire and her husband Dave are talking. He's talking about Michael, his boss.
Dave: Michael's son is real funny…you've met him before, haven't you?
Claire: His son? Yeah, I think so…it was a while ago, wasn't it?
Dave: He was already chubby then, but…now he's 12, and he's started dieting.
Claire: Dieting? A 12-year-old boy? How come?
Dave: Mind you, I've seen his recent photo, but he's not obese or anything. He's just a little plump, in a very cute way. Michael was always saying he was telling his son to watch what he eats, but he never listened to him. But now, the kid has decided to run for president of the student council, and he announced he will get slim.
Claire: Why is that?
Dave: Oh, honey, you'll love this kid…Nathan, that's him, said to his dad, “Dad, election is all about appearance. I need to look cool".
Claire: Ha, ha, ha…well said! I wonder where he got the idea from.
