Speaker: An ordinary dinner party. The sort of occasion we all enjoy. The men
are exchanging witty stories. And look at the women – aren't they pretty? Look
at how they laugh – aren't they delightful? But now the conversation turns to
more serious matters.
MAN 1: I wonder if the government should return to the Gold Standard?
MAN 2: I think it should.
MAN 1: Good. Then we're all agreed.

WOMAN: I think the government should stay off the Gold Standard, so that the
Pound can reach a level that would keep our exports competitive.
Sp: The lady's foolishly attempted to join the conversation with a wild and

WOMAN: Oh, I don't know anything about the Gold Standard, I'm afraid – but I do
love little kittens. They're so soft, and furry.
MAN 2: What a delightful thought - you dear, sweet, fragile little thing. I

natural sweetness shine through.
