Kate: Hi, Pete — I just wondered if you fancied coming out for a coffee.
Pete: Oh, I was just writing a letter.
Kate: Writing a letter! Is your phone out of order?
Pete: No… well, not exactly a letter. Ben’s applied for a job at a children’s summer camp, and they’ve asked me for a character reference. He must have put me down as one of his referees.
Kate: Oh dear — you’re not going to tell them the truth, are you?
Pete: What do you mean?
Kate: Well, that he’s a big-headed show-off who goes out every night and never does a day’s work.
Pete: Oh, come on, he’s not that bad — I mean, kids love him. Do you remember the birthday party that he arranged for his little brother last month? It was really fantastic! And he always entertains his brother’s friends with his magic tricks and silly jokes.
Kate: Oh yes, he’s great with children — but he’s a big kid himself, isn’t he?
Pete: Yes, I suppose he is a bit immature. You never know what he is up to.
Kate: And I hope they don’t expect him to work before four o’clock in the afternoon. You know what he’s like — he needs a bomb under him to get him up in the morning.
Pete: That’s right. He’s always late in the morning.
Kate: Also, he hates taking orders from anybody. Do you remember that job he had last summer in a restaurant? He ended up throwing a bucket of water over the chef when she asked him to wash the kitchen floor.
Pete: Oh no, don’t remind me. He won’t do anything he doesn’t enjoy, will he? Mind you, he did run that restaurant single-handed when the chef and two of the waiters were off sick with food poisoning.
Kate: That’s true. He’s good in a crisis. But having said that, he’s good at causing a crisis as well — I mean, you know the food poisoning was his fault, don’t you?
Pete: Oh, yes — oh dear, this isn’t helping. Yet I think he could…
Kate: Hey, do you think he’s still got blue hair?
Pete: Well, his appearance is rather strange but kids find it rather attractive, Come on. Let’s go and get that coffee.
