Conversation between friends about new Job
Sunil: Hi Yukta, how’s it going?
Yukta: Everything is great. What’s new with you?
Sunil: I am very well.
Yukta: You look positively ecstatic today. Who’s she?
Sunil: Nothing like that. Actually recently I have joined new job at DLS Venture Capital.
Yukta: That’s great Sunil. You didn’t even tell me about it.
Sunil: All of the sudden, I had to quit my previous job. Thereafter, while I was searching for job, I this exciting new opportunity. Though it’s totally new for me but pay and perks they are offering are stupendous.
Yukta: But why did you leave your accounting job?
Sunil: To be very honest, I didn’t see any significant professional growth in that dead-end accounting job. I always wanted to do something exciting which offers opportunities to travel.
Yukta: Yeah, you mentioned it before. I bet you are relishing every bit of it.
Sunil: So far so good. I can’t really whine about not hanging out with my old friends.
Yukta: I guess you can’t really have your cake and eat it too, sometimes you have to make few compromises.
Sunil: Yeah, you are right. I have to make peace with the fact that change is inevitable. I have to somehow deal with it. I am really excited about the new travel opportunities that would come with the new job.
Yukta: That’s more like it. I guess that’s the way cookie crumbles.
Yukta: By the way, congratulations on your lucky break.
Sunil: Thanks a lot.
Yukta: So, when can I expect a big treat?
Sunil: Whenever you say dear.
Yukta: How about lunch at Le Meridian on Sunday?
Sunil: That sounds good and bit expensive but alright. I see you on Sunday then.
Yukta: Alright then. Please don’t back away at eleventh hour like you always do.
Sunil: I would keep my end of the bargain. Don’t worry about it.
Yukta: That sounds fair. I have to catch an early movie at PVR. See you.
Ecstatic – extremely happy
Stumbled upon – find something by chance
Whine about – to complaint about something
Have your cake and eat it too – to have benefits of two different things
Make peace with – accept something unpleasant
That’s the way cookie crumbles – that’s the way the situation is, and it must be accepted
At eleventh hour – at the very end
