a conversation with my mother:

Mom: I think we need to get some strawberry plants from Heaton’s.

Kit: We bought raspberry plants, so now we need to get a planter.
Yes, we should do that.

Mom: Somebody’s selling them cheap come Thursday.

Kit: Planters?

Mom: Lidl, maybe. Or Aldi. Yeah. Planters.

Kit: We’ll have to look!

Mom: They’re €5, I think, at Heaton’s.

Kit: All right. I’m going to go see if I can get anywhere with this book. The problem is that I know where the chapter ends, but I don’t know really what happens before the ending.

Mom: Okay. Maybe the characters will tell you.

Kit: The strawberry plants?

Mom: Yes. maybe the strawberry plants will tell you what happens in the part before the ending.

Kit: If the strawberry plants would tell me I would hurry right over to Heaton’s to listen to them!
