    1,150 - Avoiding Topics in Conversation

    Let’s not talk about the topic of today’s episode right now. So, how’s your day going?

    Slow dialog: 1:25
    Explanations: 4:00
    Fast dialog: 18:29

    Lila: Why aren’t you dating? I have so many friends who would love to go out with you.

    George: Let’s change the subject. Talking about my love life isn’t very interesting.

    Lila: But really, you’re not getting any younger and…

    George: Moving on! Have you seen any good movies lately?

    Lila: Listen, all of your friends are settling down and you don’t want to go through life alone and lonely…

    George: That reminds me, didn’t you say that you were going to get another dog so that Rover isn’t lonely when you’re not home?

    Lila: Forget about my dog. You remember Rachel, don’t you? She just broke up with her boyfriend and she’d be perfect for you.

    George: Speaking of Rachel, how is her mother? Wasn’t she in the hospital?

    Lila: If Rachel isn’t your type, how about Amina? She has great legs and I know you’re a leg man.

    George: And now for something completely different…How is your diet coming along? Have you lost any weight yet?

    Lila: I don’t really want to talk about my weight.

    George: But I think you’re having trouble shedding those pounds, right? I have lots of suggestions on what you can do.

    Lila: Anyway, as I said before, I don’t really want to talk about my diet…

    George: You need to cut out sweets if you want to lose weight. Are you eating too many sweets?

    Lila: That’s none of your business!

    George: My sentiments exactly!
