Mad Person: Well of course I'll not be going to that party. He says it will be all the family and neighbours at it. Not wild enough for me.
Nelly: They're all a bit staid, are they?
Mad Person: STAID! What do you mean by staid? Is that a Ballymena word?
Nelly: No. It's a proper word. It's in the Oxford English Dictionary.
Mad Person: Oh! EXCUSE ME! In the dictionary is it? Well. I'VE never heard of it!
Nelly (soothingly) Of course it does sound like it ought to be a Ballymena word.
Mad Person (soothed) Yes. It does.
