Office Worker 1 (40’s, female): It’s St Swithin’s Day today, 15th July, and it’s raining – that means we’re going to have rain for another forty days...
Office Worker 2 (50’s, female): What a load of rubbish that saying is – it’s just an urban myth. How can you believe such an arbitrary piece of information? How could it rain for 40 days just because it rained on a nominated day?

Office Worker 2: (Interrupting) Anyway if you want rain or a change of weather, it’s best to go to the Christian calendar. Where I come from there’s San Isidro, the patron saint of agriculture. He regulates the rain, so if you want the rain to stop you should pray to him.
Office Worker 1: Oh, OK then.
