Man: Is something wrong? Can I help?
Woman: I just moved here and I'm a little confused. I need a laundromat. Can you tell me where the nearest one is?
Man: Let me think.
Woman: Is it far away from here?
Man: Not really. The nearest one is on Garfield Street. Head straight down this road until you reach the bowling alley, turn
right and walk two blocks. That's Garfield, turn left and the laundromat is in the middle of the block on the right side,
next to a drugstore.
Woman: Got it, straight to the bowling alley, tum right and go two blocks, then left, it's next to a drugstore.
Woman: Thank you very much.
Man: You're welcome.
Tom: Hi, Lucy. Nice to see you.
Lucy: Me too.
Tom: I was impressed yesterday when you won the English
speech contest. You really deserved to win.
Lucy: Thank you. That's very kind.
Tom: Your speech was excellent.
Lucy: Was it?
Tom: Sure. I really liked what you said about fixing the problems of pollution. It was very reasonable. I think you're
right, too. If people would just care a little more and work a little harder, the problem would solve itself.
Lucy: It was a real challenge speaking to such a big audience. I was scared but I felt good too.
Tom: Well, you were a real success and I think everyone agreed with what you said too.

Sally: Stop playing around. You know. I get scared when you start talking like this.

keep me awake at night.
Harry: Actually, I wasn't completely joking. I saw him in a dream last night.
Sally: Maybe you just miss him.
Harry: Yeah, he was a great uncle, very kind to me, when he was alive.
Sally: Next time try not to scare me too much with your stories. You know it upsets me.
Harry: OK. I promise.
