Dona Sara: Good afternoon, Patty. How are you?
Dona Patricia: Well, more or less Sara. I have a headache, but very strong, because my stomach hurts.
Dona Sara: Have you had tea?
Dona Patricia: Yes, but it did not help me much.
Dona Sara: But what did you take it for?
Dona Patricia: No, I do not have it.
Dona Sara: Well that’s what you need. The rue is very good for headaches. I do have it in my house. I’m going to look for it and I’ll come back right away.
Dona Patricia: Thank you, Sara, I thank you.
