A: My grandfather hasn’t been too well lately.

B: Oh dear.

A: He’s 79. Don’t you think at his age he should slow down a bit?

B: Absolutely.

A: But he won’t listen to me. He says he wants to enjoy his life to the full.

B: Fair enough.

A: Last summer he went on a two-week cycling holiday in France.

B: You’re kidding!

A: We’re going to give him a big party for his 80th birthday.

That’s great.

But before that, I’m going to have a word with him and tell him to take things more easy.

Good for you.
