Vol. 17 : Feeling old yet?
Mahiro: Hi Rich. . . .What'd you do to your leg?
Richard: I sprained my ankle (1) over the weekend. . .
Mahiro: Ouch. How did that happen?
Richard: (2) I was helping my daughter do some running practice drills, and I ended up hurting myself.
Mahiro: She has to practice running? What for?
Richard: (3) She's been chosen to run the relay for her team in this year's field day so I was trying to coach her how to pass the baton and stuff . . .
Mahiro: Let me guess. You got a little too overenthusiastic . . .
Richard: Well, there's this great workout that NFL players do, so (4) I was trying to show her how it's done and that's when I heard a really nasty "crack."
Mahiro: I thought (5) you used to play football.
Richard: Yeah, I did. And I thought I was in pretty good shape . . .
Mahiro: Well, you're over 40 now. How many years ago was that? Maybe you need to remember your age before you start giving any lessons to your daughter.
Richard: Geez, (6) you sound exactly like my wife. . .
