10. Greeting an Old Friend

A: It's been so long since I've seen you!

B: I know. You haven't changed a bit.

A: Oh, stop lying. I've gained a little weight.

B: We all have gained some weight.

A: Tell me how the kids are doing.

B: They are doing well, and yours?

A: They are doing so well, growing up so fast.

B: Are you at the same job or are you doing something else?

A: No. I left that place three years ago to start my own business.

B: Congratulations! You always had an independent spirit.

A: Thanks. It's going really well so far.

B: I'd love to hear more about it over a cup of coffee.
