MONIQUE: Next week, we're going to spend four days in a village in Dordogne. PATRICK: Nice! And where are you staying? MONIQUE: Some friends recommended a gite [to us]. It's an old farmhouse located at the edge of the village. They told us that it was very quiet, and [that] there was a big garden! We're going [there] with another couple of friends and we're even going to be able to take our dog with us! I've already packed our suitcases! PATRICK: And... you don't have a little extra space for me? MONIQUE: Of course, I'm going to put you in my pocket!

Clever stuff happening!
