Mim: I really like how ABJ has opened up this space.
T: Ja, me too.
Mim: We’re going to put an occasional table over there.
T:  Is the table going to be there all the time?
Mim: What do you mean?
Pim: Will it be there only on occasion?
Mim: You two have been spending far too much time together!

Pim: You’d better be careful saying you’re happy to travel in Africa. Next thing they’ll send you to Macquarie University in Rwanda.
Mim: I think you mean Makerere University…
T: …in Uganda.

T: Who’s that guy?
Mim: He’s the head of the  SA Tennis Association.
T: If my name were Ian Smith, I’d change it. Although, I did know a guy called Iain Smith in Dubai.
Mim: Ja, there was that music teacher in Grahamstown called Ian Smith too. But if your surname is Smith, you really should have a name like Sebastian or Benjamin… or Broccoli.

T: I just came up with a good idea for a book. Another one.
Mim. Mmm?
T: It’s going to be about people who still live at home. I’ll get all my friends who are living with their parents to write a chapter. I’ll call it: My mom lost my ID book.
Mim: Do you want to make families estranged?
T: I suppose it would be only fair to give the parents each their own chapter too.
Mim: It’s a bad idea. And anyway, we aren’t sure that I lost your ID book.

T: Okay, but if we don’t leave right now we’ll have less time…
Pim: Fewer time; you aren’t allowed to say “less” when Mim is around.
Kim: Fewer is more.

AM:  I didn’t know you were left-handed?
T: After our conversation the other day,  I would’ve  told you if I were! I’m right-handed; I just eat left-handed, cos my Mim does.
AM: Oh, okay.
T (mimes strangling): AM, I’m going to muuurder you!
