I spoke with my friend Pam last weekend, and she talked a lot
about figure skating. Ever since she started to figure skate several
months ago, that's all she ever talks about! I never go out with
her anymore because she practices figure skating all the time.
And whenever I talk to her on the phone, figure skating is the only
thing she talks about! (She thinks that everybody should learn to
figure skate.) I can't stand it! I don't ever want to hear another
word about figure skating!
