Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

- Hello! Sorry for being late, but I needed to wash your dish so that I could bring it back to you. Thanks again for your delicious apple tart! You must absolutely give me that recipe! - Only if you exchange it (with me) for your lemon cake recipe. - Deal! I'll send it to you on WhatsApp. - Come in, come in! Let's go to the living room to have the aperitif! What would you like to drink? - I wouldn't mind a little pastis, if you have some? - Of course I have some, who do you take me for! And you, Véronique? - Do you want to try that rosé that I told you about? - Yes, I was wondering if you had any left! Thanks for sharing!

Clever stuff happening!
