“Sorry, that was my brother. I think something happened and he wants me to head over to his place” 

“But I just made dinner” 

“I know, I’m sorry. I hope it won’t take long but it’s hard to tell when he didn’t tell me what the hell is happening” 

“Do you think it’ll take long? I can wait for you” 

“No, it’s okay. You go on ahead and eat. I’ll let you know when I’m on my way home”
