W: Yeah, I can’t wait to go home and take a cold shower.
M: The worst should be over soon. I know it will be cool by this Thursday.
W: Really. I guess we can go camping on Sunday. Give me a call on Friday to set up the time. OK?
M: Hi! Jean! I am going out for a coffee break. Will you join me?
W: Sure! Oh! Peter, you look tired. Are you getting sick?
M: No. My new neighbor’s dog kept me awake all night. It never stopped barking.
W: Oh, dear. You’d better go and talk to your neighbor about it.
M: Ladies and gentlemen, right now, it is 12 o’clock, and we are going to stop at this restaurant for lunch. The bus driver will pick you up in an hour.
W: Where will he meet us?
M: Right here, in front of the restaurant. And be sure to be on time.
W: But I want to buy some gifts before we leave. Do you know any good place around here?
M: Hello, Brian’s speaking.
W: Hi! Brian, it’s Mary here. Hope I haven’t caught you at a bad time.
M: No, no. I was just watching TV.
W: Oh, good. Have you had a good weekend?
M: Yeah. It’s been good. I went to the cinema with some friends yesterday. What about you?
W: Not too bad. Hey, actually, I am calling because it’s my birthday this Saturday. I was wondering if you would come.
M: That sounds good. That time?
W: It’s 7 o’clock, OK? David won’t finish work until 6:30.

W: Oh, in that case. I will invite you to the piano concert next Friday.

W: Only a little. I helped out on my father’s office last year. And I worked in a recording studio last month.
M: That’s good. Can work every day?
W: Yes, I can work any day of the week. Oh, no, except Thursday. I work at a nursing home in the neighborhood that day.

W: Next Monday.
M: OK. That’s great. We have two stores, a very busy one downtown and one near the airport with almost no customers even on weekends.
W: I want to work near the airport.
