Ivan: "Well, thank heavens it's Friday, then."
Sally: "Yes, it's been a rather tense week for me. ImaginIt, you know."
Ivan: "At least you didn't crack. I think I would have sold on Tuesday, and taken the loss."
Sally: "If I had been sensible, I would have too. I was lucky."
Ivan: "Really? I thought you had faith in the company. After all, you brought a lot of shares on Wednesday."
Sally: "I was hoping for a bounce. And fortunately it came. So I unloaded and cashed in this afternoon. I can spend the weekend with my mind at rest."
Ivan: "Nice work. How's the rest of your portfolio?"
Sally: "Nosy. Ticking over. Most of my shares are long term holds, so I don't have the thrills and spills you and Peter have. Have you two made up yet?"
Ivan: "Cold war, I'm afraid. His nose is well out of joint."
Sally: "It's a pity. I don't like having bad blood, it poisons the whole atmosphere. Well, there you have it."
Ivan: "Indeed. Well, I would say let's put it all behind us for 48 hours, but I've got to go home to read up on some company reports."
Sally: "Wuffyburgers on your plate?"
Ivan: "Yes. The shares have gone up nicely. Now I have to decide whether to hold or sell."
