Two friends talk about cell phones.

A: Hey, look at my new cell phone.

B: Where'd you get it?

A: I got it at the mall. It was free with my new plan.

B: So what stuff can it do?

A: It has text messages, voice-mail, Internet and instant messenger too. I think you can even watch TV on it.

B: Cool. What about music? Can you use it like an mp3 player?

A: Umm... I think so. Let me look... Yeah, it has a USB card to hold the mp3s.

B: I think I may need to go get one too. How long of a contract do you have to sign?

A: Just a year, I think.

B: That's not too bad.

Two friends are in line at the post office and are losing their patience cause the line's moving slowly.

A: We've been waiting in line for like 20 minutes.

B: No, it's been like an hour.

A: No way. You always exaggerate. It does feel like way more than 20 minutes, though, cause the line's moving so slow. Probably cause there's only two people here.

B: I bet they have more than just two people here. They're probably just taking breaks or goofing off somewhere.

A: Finally, the line's starting to move.

B: Hey, I didn't know you get passports at the post office. I just saw a sign for it.

A: Yeah, I got mine here last year.

B: Cool. I still need to get mine. I haven't ever been out of the country, so I haven't needed one.

A: But you're going to Europe this summer, right?

B: Yeah, so I should probably get mine soon.

A: You should. It might take a while for them to send it too you.

Two friends talk about a soap opera

A: Did you see the last episode?

B: Nope. What happened?

A: Let's see.... Angela got pregnant.

B: Really? Who's the father?

A: Robert.

B: Wow. So does everyone know or is it a secret?

A: No one knows. If Angela's dad knew about it, he'd be really pissed.

B: I bet. He's really protective of her.

A: The next episode starts in an hour. You wanna stay and watch it?

B: Of course I will. Thanks.

Jake, a dog, is sick and needs to go to the veterinarian (vet). One person holds him, while the other drives the car.

A: So when did Jake start throwing up?

B: He's been throwing up every day this week. Poor thing.

A: At first, I just thought he ate some bad food, but if he's been throwing up every day, he's probably sick.

B: Yeah, I think he might have worms.

A: Hopefully not.

B: Well, he needs to get his shots anyway.

A: Do you have insurance?

B: No, it's not worth it. I only come to the vet like twice a year.

A: Ah, ok. So which street do I turn on?

B: 5th. Thanks for driving, by the way. I have to hold Jake whenever he's in the car, or else he'll get scared.

A: No problem.

B: Just a few things for the picnic tomorrow. Like paper plates, bread, lunch meat, chips. Stuff like that.

A: What about soda?

B: That too. I'm trying to remember what kind they wanted.

A: Let's just get Coke or Pepsi, and maybe some Sprite too. Everyone likes those.

B: Sounds good. Let's split up, so we get everything faster.

A: I'll get the bread and sodas. You can get the other stuff.

E-mail Lingo”

Cody helps Elaine with her e-mail account.

Elaine: Just let me check my e-mail real quick.

Cody: Alright, no problem.

Elaine: Look. What's this mean?

Cody: It says your inbox is full. So it won't let you receive any new e-mails.

Elaine: Then I need to delete some messages to make room.

Cody: Yeah. Why don't you delete everything in your junk mail folder first.

Elaine: It should be fine now. I deleted a few e-mails with really big attachments that were taking up a lot of space.

Cody stayed late at work and his wife, Elaine, was still awake when he returned home.

Cody: Hey. Why are you still up?

Elaine: I couldn't sleep, so I decided to read for a little bit.

Cody: Is everything alright? Were you worried about something?

Elaine: Well, not really. I don't know.

Cody: Do you wanna talk about it? Remember, we said that we wanted to tell each other everything and be honest.

Elaine: It's not a big deal. I'm sure she'll be fine.

Cody: Who?

Elaine: My sister called and said that our aunt is having surgery tomorrow. So I was just worried about her.

Cody: What's wrong?

Elaine: I'm not sure exactly. She said it wasn't anything major.

Cody: I'm sure she'll be fine. Let's go get some sleep and tomorrow we'll call and see how it went.

B: Is it furnished?

Two friends talk in the parking lot.

A: Is that a new car? B: No, it's just a rental. A: That makes sense. I didn't think you could afford a car that nice. Wow, it's a convertible too.

B: Yeah, it's really nice. I got in a wreck. So I'm just using this car until they fix mine.

A: When'd you get in a wreck? How'd it happen?

B: It was on Monday. The other driver wasn't paying attention, ran a stop sign, and hit me.

A: No one got hurt, right?

B: No. We were both fine.
