“Babe, just calling to tell you I left uni and I’m on my way, okay?
No of course I didn’t tell anyone! I’ll just tell my tutor a family member had a medical emergency which isn’t a lie…
Look, tell your parents you’re at the library. I’m going to tell mine I’m with you and we’ll drive to my sisters when we’re done…
No, of course she won’t judge you!
No, you can’t lie and say you it was your appendix! What if one day you actually get your appendix out…
Look, they’ll just clean you out. My cousin had the same thing happen and she was fine in two days. 
I fully told you not to go to that dodgy place for the abortion!
Shit – an uncle on this train keeps looking at me. I think he’s desi.
Okay, jaanu I’ll call again when I’m there take care.”
