Emily: So how was your Christmas? Zoe: Eh, alright. Good to see my Aunty Leslie at least. Emily: She the family highlight? Zoe: Haha! I guess. She's got the best stories; I don't have a lot to say to most of my relatives. Christmas is overrated. Emily: Not a fan? Zoe: I'd probably like it better if Mum wasn't driving me nuts. Did I tell you she and Walter broke up? Emily: Oh no! When? Zoe: Just before term ended. He was gonna be at Christmas but now she's the only single one again, so - overcompensation central. Emily: Gee! That must be really disappointing for her. Zoe: ... Yeah. I should be more understanding, but I'm just mad. Is that awful? Emily: Nah, just vent to me! What's she doing? Zoe: It's not new - she hates being a single parent, right, but always puts on such a show - Like, she was telling Aunty Leslie how, like, liberated she is cos she never needed Walter to help parent - and how she's raised us to be so independent - She even said some crap about how she's taught us all her "feminist values" - Yeah, right!
