My mum's concerned about me and Betty.
You haven't got a hobby. You do nothing with your spare time.
We do. We watch telly. We read. We listen to music. We blog.
Yes but you don't communicate with other people.
Blogging is communicating.
Yes, but it's not face to face. I don't know any other couples like you. Most normal couples have a social life. They meet up with other couples. They go round to other couples' houses. They entertain.
What have we got in common with other couples? Come to think of it what have I ever had in common with most people? Besides, I've got my friends.
Which you see how often?
They're miles away! How often would you see your friends if they moved hundreds of miles away?
We're always making new friends. We've got friends from dancing. Friends from bowls. Friends who we meet on holiday - we're always chatting to new people when we're on holiday. Tell me, Geoff. Are you really happy? Are you really really happy with your life?
Outside of work?
Yes, of course.
You need a hobby, though. One where you meet people. Golf.
I hate golf.
You used to play sports. Tennis.
That was for the competition. I didn't make any friends from tennis.
I'm not going to get anywhere with you two am I?
We're happy with our sad little lives.
Are you doing anything at the weekend?
Of course not. You?
