"It's handy having a daughter who's good with figures."
"Shush, Mum."
"Is everything in order?"
"Not quite. You are forty thousand in debt, you'll default on the loan from the bank and you will more than likely lose the business and your livelihood."
"I see."
"And the fact that you are on your third gin and tonic in forty minutes isn't helping matters."
"It's just a snifter, Amy."
"Will you drive me into town this afternoon?"
"I'm going to do what any sensible woman would do in a crisis."
"And what's that?"
"Buy a new pair of shoes."
