"So Jane, do you have any suggestions as to what I should do?" asked Mrs. Lenie.
"Well, how about you get Liz to stay with my son Nick this summer?" suggested Mrs. Carter.
"That's a wonderful idea!" exclaimed Mrs. Lenie. "They're close in age and they used to know each other when we lived in Florida."
"Yes, and I'm sure Nick would be thrilled to have a roommate. He lives in that big house of his all by himself," said Mrs. Carter.
"Wonderful, so I will call you in a couple of days and tell you what Liz says, although she doesn't really have that much choice," said Mrs. Lenie.
"Ok, great, so I'll talk to you then," said Mrs. Carter and then hung up the phone.
