Cliparti: You never mentioned that, Fluppy.

Fluppy: Don't be so angry, Cliparti, I have just come back today and planning another trip with my family. Actually, my trip was not a holiday trip as I had visited my grandparents. But, now since itís so hot now, so we are planning to go for a holiday trip.
