Harp:So, does that mean that it was mentally unstable?
Maura: No, it means that it was interesting, different, probably lots of energy.
Harp: OK, I understand, I understand. So, we use “crazy” in terms of something that is good, something fun, something exiting. For example, I went bungee jumping and it was crazy. Or I went skydiving, some adventure sport, something, you know?
Maura: Yeah, that’s a pretty crazy thing to do.
