Meaning

Miss Baker says she doesn’t want to go into the city, because she is training for something important, that’s why she says no to the drink. But she has no problem with laying around on the sofa all day, even though she is supposedly training for golf. That’s why Tom says she can’t believe how Miss Baker ever gets anything done.
