Man: Why didn't you come to the party on Saturday?
Woman: I wanted to but we got flooded.
Man: But you're not living on Desperation Drive, are you?
Woman: No! But that's not the only part of town that went under in the rain; only they seem to have been hit the worst.
Man: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything I can do to help?
Woman: Nah, thanks. Luckily it wasn't that bad for us. We don't have a basement and downstairs is my father's garage; not that much lying around on the floor.
Man: I'm glad to hear that. The weather's been really crazy lately. Do you think that has anything to do with global warming?
Woman: I really don't know. I've just read an article saying that weather comes from the cosmic rays Earth passes through ever so often.
Man: Sounds a bit far fetched to me.
Woman: They do seem to have the figures to support it though.
Man: With a bit of wishful thinking, you can find figures to support about anything.
