A: I called at your old place and it was all boarded up. I thought you’d be there forever.
B: Me too.
A: So where are you now?
B: In hell.
A: Is that far from your old place?
B: Much closer than I'd imagined.
A: You are there by yourself?
B: I guess so.
A: Maybe I could come and visit?
B: I wouldn’t if I were you.
A: Oh, why’s that?
B: You might end up having to stay.
A: That’s OK, I could catch the first bus out in the morning.
B: There is no bus out.
B: There’s not even a morning.
A: Maybe we can chat on the phone instead?
B: Sure, that would be nice.
