ESL Podcast 670 – To Forgive and Forget

Luc: You’ll never guess who called and left a voicemail message today.

Angela: Who?

Luc: Barbara!

Angela: Oh, really? What did she want?

Luc: She said she was calling to RSVP for our party this Saturday.

Angela: Did she?

Luc: Stop playing innocent with me. Did you or did you not invite her to our party this Saturday?

Angela: I may have. Okay, I did.

Luc: Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t you and Barbara have a knock-down, drag-out fight last month?

Angela: We may have.

Luc: And didn’t you say that you’d never speak to her again much less invite her over to our house?

Angela: That’s water under the bridge. You know what they say: “To err is human, to forgive divine”.

Luc: I can’t believe my ears. You ranted and raved for days that you’d hold against her for the rest of your life all of the terrible things she said about you.

Angela: I was being over dramatic. I don’t think I ranted and raved, actually. We just had a little spat. It’s best just to forgive and forget.

Luc: Unbelievable! Why can’t you have a selective memory when we have fights?
