TM: Don't I? What do I want then?
TW: I have some ground beef.
TM: Well let's have minced beef and Yorkshire pudding.
TW: I was thinking chili.
TM: OK. Let's have chili then. Did I guess the right answer?

TM: (Feeling a little confused.) Well let's have roast chicken then.
TW: We've already had chicken this week.
TM: Well let's have roast beef.
TW: But we're having beef today. In the chili.
TM: Well let's go out for dinner then.
TW: We can't go out for dinner. We went out for lunch last week.
TM: (In desperation.) How about oysters and beer?
TW: We can't have oysters and beer for Sunday dinner.
Pause for thought...
TM: We haven't had Beef Wellington for a while.

TM: Did I guess the right answer?
TW: I'm going shopping to buy some wellingtons.
