M: Nancy, the song you sang just now is really beautiful! Did you write it?
W: No, my mother wrote it. I used to sing it to my brother when he was a little boy.
W: Tommy, you’ve been watching TV at home all day long. It’s summertime. Go out for a bike ride with your friends or play basketball in the park.
M: Summer is for being lazy. All I want to do is sit around and relax.
M: What’s wrong with you?
W: I think I’m running a fever.
M: I see. Let me take your temperature.
W: I’m wondering what we should have for dinner this evening.
M: Are you asking me, honey?
W: Yes. I really don’t feel like cooking. Can you prepare it for our children?
M: Well, you know me. I can always eat pizza.
M: Why don’t you fly?
W: It is too expensive. I am going somewhere this summer, probably to Sydney by train. Though it may take an hour more, I can enjoy the view outside the window. It will be a good way for me to relax myself.
M: Hello! Paul Restaurant! This is head waiter speaking! Good morning!
W: I’d like to book a table for two.
M: Is that for today, please?
W: Yes, it’s for today.
M: At what time?
W: Oh, about three o’clock, I suppose.
M: I’m sorry. We only serve lunch till 3 p. m.
W: Oh, well, two o’clock then, and it must be by a window.
M: OK, and your name, please?
W: White! Linda White!
M: Good, Ms. White! A table for two at 2 p.m. today.
W: That’s right. Bye!
M: See you, Ms. White!
M: Why are you still up? It’s half past eleven.
W: I can’t sleep.
M: You were supposed to be in bed an hour ago.
W: I just did as what you said but I stayed awake all this time, so I have got up again.
M: Is anything wrong?
W: Not really, but I have a lot of things on my mind.
M: Do you want to talk about them with me?
W: No. I’d better try to sleep, because I have to get up for school at 6:00.
M: You’re a good girl. Let me know if you need any help, honey.
W: Thanks, Dad.
W: I think we’re lost. Why don’t we pull over at the next gas station? We can ask them for directions.
M: No, we’re not lost. We’re just taking a longer route.
W: OK, then, where are we?
M: Um... well, let me have another look at the surroundings.
W: You have no idea where we are, do you?
M: Well, I think I do. We just have to find this “NO SMOKING” sign, turn left, and then we’ll get to Cindy’s house.
W: Yeah, I think she said it should only take 45 minutes to get there. We’ve been driving around for two hours! Why don’t we call Cindy?
M: Fine. But don’t tell her that we got lost! Tell her that we had a flat tire or had an accident!
W: “Hi, Cindy! We’re on our way to your house. We’re just on Highway 50... But we’re not exactly lost...”
W: Are you alright, Jack? You don’t seem to be as cheerful as you normally are.
M: To be honest, Susan, I’ve had a really bad day.
W: What happened?
M: I slept through my alarm and ended up two hours late for work.
W: What did your boss say?
M: He told me he would fire me if I was late again. He’s very mean!
W: Was it the first time that you had shown up late to work?
M: That was my second time. The first time I was late was when I was involved in a car accident, which made my boss unhappy.
W: Which county is your boss from?
M: He’s from Australia. Before I met him, I thought Australians were easy-going. I had no idea he was so bad-tempered.
W: What are you going to do?
M: I think I’d better look for another job. I need to find a boss who is a little considerate.
W: Good luck!
