‘Oh? What do you call owling?’
‘Owling? That’s the hobby you told me to get!’
‘Yes, but don’t you realize how much walking and climbing you do every day to follow that silly owl all over the place?’

‘It’s true, Melb. There are no secret solutions in life, no magic words. It’s just practical stuff, like exercising, that shows results.’
Her mouth fell open. But then her eyes blazed. “Are you telling me I’ve been paying you all that money, and the reason I lost weight was because I’ve been exercising?!’

‘Con men aren’t con men for no reason. People are gullible. I’ve made a career out of that human fault.’

He swallowed. ‘I promise to pay you back.’
She shook her head, disbelief stopping anything else from coming out of her mouth.”
