Kevin: It’s kind of chilly this morning isn’t it?
Dorothy: Definitely! We’ve been having some strange weather lately. Normally it’s not this cold this time of the year.
Kevin: Did you hear that it’s supposed to rain tomorrow?
Dorothy: Really? It hasn’t rained in months. That’s great news, considering the drought.
Kevin: I agree. We could really use some rain!
Dorothy: So, have you heard? Kitty and Joe are getting married.
Kevin: That’s wonderful news, although I must say I’m a little surprised. Didn’t they just meet a few months ago?
Dorothy: Yes, I was surprised when I heard too. But I guess when it’s right, it’s right.
Kevin: I suppose that’s true. Is there any reason they couldn’t wait?
Dorothy: Okay, don’t tell anyone, but apparently Kitty gave Joe an ultimatum.
Kevin: Wow. Marriage isn’t something you should do under pressure.
Dorothy: I agree. I have my fingers crossed for them. I hope everything works out.
