W: Excuse me. This is the address. How do I find it?
M: Right. You’ll need a street map. Here’s one, and I’ll show you where it is.
W: Oh my! My car broke down, and I have to meet my aunt at the railway station before noon.
M: You’re lucky. I can drop you off on my way.
W: Did you hear that Mr. Peterson is coming next week, Gordon?
M: Yes, so I called all the department heads to my office this morning. We need to give him reports on our program.
W: I hope you like the book I lent you. I wasn’t sure if you’d be interested.
M: I had the same doubt at first. But once I started, I simply couldn’t put it down.
W: What is going on? It’s May, and we still have to wear warm clothes.
M: Well, there’s some good news on the radio. You probably can wear shorts tomorrow.
W: Harry, let’s play some ping-pong today.
M: I’d love to play a set or two, but my right arm hurts. I’ve decided to stop playing ping-pong until it feels better.
W: Well, how about going skating?
M: I’d like to, but my knee hurts, too.
W: Harry, stop making excuses! You’re just lazy.
M: No, I’m not! You know, there’s a basketball match on TV today. Let’s just stay home and watch it.
W: OK. You stay, and I’ll play with Helen.
