Conversation between three friends going to a concert
Alex: Hey Jane, John, there is a musical concert in the park. You want to go see the band play?
Jane: I am done with my homework; I can go.
John: Me too. Let’s go.
Jane: Hey, look at that sport car. Isn’t it neat?
Alex: That is exactly the kind of car that I want once I get a good job. I bet it is very fast. I want mine to be red though.
Jane: Keep on dreaming, Alex. That car costs a fortune.
Alex: It does not hurt to set high expectations. Maybe one day I will make a lot of money, and I might surprise you.
John: Talking about cars, why is the traffic so heavy today?
Alex: People are probably heading toward the park for the concert. The band does play pretty good music.
Jane: Yes, it does. For the last three years, I have never missed the concert. I have always arranged my schedule so that I could attend the event once the band was in town.
John: How long ago did the band start playing at our park?
Jane: I think it started this tradition five years ago before you moved into our neighbourhood. Every year it always arrives the first week of June to play for the whole week.
Alex: You will enjoy this evening, John. There will be good Country music, a lot of stomping around, and definitely a lot of hollering.
John: It sounds like fun.
Jane: My favourite is Rock and Roll music; however, I have to say that country melodies can be quite enticing. I can listen to them all day long.
Alex: John, what kind of music do you like?
John: Oh, I like all kinds of music as long as it is not Hard Rock.
Jane: Wow, look at the number of people who have already shown up for the concert. Good thing that we are here already.
Alex: Jane, where do you want to sit? In the shade or in the sun?
Jane: In the shade, please. I have been in the sun too much lately.
John: There is a food stand over there. Do you two want anything?
Jane: Nothing for me, thanks. I already have my bottle of water.
Alex: I want a bag of chips and a soda. Are you sure you do not want any chips, Jane?
Jane: I am quite sure. Besides, my mother is cooking a good steak dinner, and I want to save my appetite.
Alex: Jane, you are so lucky to have such a good cook for a mother. John, you have to taste her cream cakes one of these days. You cannot find better cream cakes anywhere in this town.
Jane: I know we will have cream cake for dessert this evening. I will save you a piece if you want, John.
John: I always love cake, so please save me a piece. Thanks, Jane.
Jane: How about you, Alex? A piece of cake for you too?
Alex: You know I will say yes to a piece of your mother’s cream cake any day.
Jane: OK, I will save two pieces of cream cake for both of you tonight. We can meet at the cafeteria at lunch time tomorrow and I will give them to you.
John: Alex, you better get your chips and soda now if you still want them. It is almost 3:00PM, and the concert is about to start.
Alex: For the last time, do you guys want anything?
Jane: I am sure I do not want anything, Alex. I am doing fine.
John: Me neither, Alex.
Alex: OK, save me a seat. I will be right back.
