Socialising with friends

Catriona feels that the night out did not go well for Douglas and she contacts his friend Freddy from the bridge club in an attempt to cheer him up.

Freddy comes to pick up Douglas and take him to the bridge club. On the way in the car Freddy starts telling Douglas about what’s been happening …

Freddy is talking too quickly and giving Douglas too much information at one time. Douglas feels overwhelmed by all this information and struggles to make sense of what Freddy is saying.

Freddy says, “We all went to the championship meeting last week. Jean and Derek weren’t there because they just got back from their villa in Tenerife yesterday. They had great weather, but Jean wasn’t too well. We came 2nd in the championship though.”

Douglas think to himself, “Jean? … Derek? … yesterday? … Tenerife?”
