Talking with Aunt Louise
Aunt Louise was Kate's aunt. She was also a woman Kate's friends liked to talk to. Bob went to see Aunt Louise after work. She was fixing beef for dinner.
"Can I ask you something, Aunt Louise?" asked Bob. "I have a problem at work, and I need help."
"But you said that you liked the job," said Aunt Louise.
"I do like it," Bob said. "It's not a big problem. The problem is that I don't know how to talk to the women who need bikes fixed. Should I call a woman Miss, Mrs., or Ms.? I bet talking to women is not a problem for you."
"Don't bet on it," said Aunt Louise. "Year after year, women and men get worked up about something. It is only a name. Would you like to have dinner with us?
"Yes," said Bob, "I would love to."
It was fun to talk and joke with Aunt Louise.
