M: Do you have any plans for the weekend, Dorothy. Would
you like to join me for an outing?
W: Thanks, but I am going to work on my paper all
W: So what did you buy?
M: A T-shit, it was a real bargain. I got it half price,
saving 15 dollars.
M: I am going to the museum Sunday afternoon. There is a
new exhibition of Indian art. Want to come with me?
W: I’d love to, but my best friend is getting married on
Sunday, and I won’t miss it for anything.
W: National Bank, can I help you?
M: Yes, please. What are your business hours?
W: We open at 9:00 and close at 4:00 during the week, on
Saturday we close one hour earlier at 3:00, and we are closed on Sunday.

I know you like cooking. So that’s another point in its favor, but there is a

want it or it will be taken.
M: Hello, Barbara, welcome back. You look great.
W: Rod, it’s lovely to see you again.
M: How was your trip?
W: Fine but tiring. Milan was interesting, it’s bigger
than I expected, noisier and dirtier, too.
M: And Florence, what did you think of Florence?
W: Well, I didn’t go there. Have you been there?
M: No, I’ve never been to Italy. I’d really like to go to
Roma. Well, the cars are in the car park. Is this all your luggage?
W: Yes, but the suitcase is very heavy.
M: Barbara, what’s in it? Books or stones?
W: Just 20 pairs of shoes.
