Conversation One
F1:
Im going crazy. I didnt sleep a wink last night.
F2:
How come?
F1:
Its my cats again. If theyre out, they want to come in. And if theyre in, they want
to go out. Like T.S. Eliot said: Theyre on the wrong side of every door. Last
night they woke me up three times.
Conversation Two
F:
Oh, no! Look at the time! It's already 6 o'clock and your mother is coming at
seven!
M:
This place is a mess. Look at the dust on the floor! What'll we do?
F:
Relax. I'll clean up while you make dinner
M:
We'll never be ready in time. Maybe she won't notice the dust.
Conversation Three [F2 = French]

Georgette! What happened to your skirt? You look like you fell in the river.

passed by splashed water on me.
F1:
Yeah! The puddles from the rain are enormous.
F2:
And filthy!
Conversation Four
M:
Thanks so much for the tomato plants! I love homegrown tomatoes.

Youre welcome. Just be sure to plant them within a couple of days. Theyre
getting a little too big for their pots.

Bye now.
M:
Oh, my gosh. I dont have time to get the soil ready for so many plants! I have a
lot of work to do in the house this weekend.

Conversation One
M:
I want one of those phones that does everything: takes pictures, does e-mail,
pays bills Im tired of my old-fashioned phone. All you can do is call people and
talk!
F:
Well, have you seen the Ultraphone? Its got the latest technology. You just talk
into it, and it can create documents at your office.
M:
How does it do that?
F:
It can read your lips. You just speak into the lens of the camera so it can see
your lips.
M:
Youre pulling my leg. That sounds impossible!
F:
No. Just step this way. Ill show you how it works.
M:
Wow! The Ultraphone
Conversation Two

I need a faster way to get dinner ready. It takes too long to start after I get home
from work.

Well, let me show you something betterremote-controlled cookware. You
combine the ingredients the night before and just plug it in. The cookware keeps
everything cold until you press the button on this remote. Then the cookware
heats up and cooks everything. When you get home, dinner is ready!

Dinner-from-a-Distance sounds like a lot less work in a lot less time!
Conversation Three

Were worried about what our children are watching on TV. There are so many
terrible programs. What can we do?

No. Whats that?
M2:
Well, you buy this special TV and then you register by e-mail. Once a week, you
receive an e-mail describing daytime TV programs for that week. You just check
off the programs you dont want and Kinder-TV simply removes them.

Unbelievable. Ive never heard of anything like that.

Its absolutely the only one that exists.
