Not the current Mrs Ancient but the one before rang her Mum one morning from the car to tell her we were on the way over for lunch.SWMBO will talk to her sister for an hour or so, and if I ask her what her sister was saying she will give me a ten minute blow by blow conversation (ignoring the fact that I was in the same room as her and already heard both sides of it} then stop.
If I ask her if her sister said anything else later on the answer is usually "well, no..apart from..." and then repeat the headlines of the previous description....
It's like getting the news headlines every hour
40 minutes later she finished the call thus:
"Got to go now, we're outside your house".
