M: Wow! You look like a drowned rat! Didn't you know there is a thunder-storm today?
W: I knew there would be a shower, but I didn't realize it would rain cats and dogs today.
M: Well. You'd better take a hot shower right now, or you will catch a cold.
W: I know. I don't want to get sick, especially during finals week.
W: I think a drought has set in. It hasn’t rained a drop for months.
M: I think so too, but didn't it rain last month?
W: It did rain last month, but the rainfall was only half the monthly average.
M: Oh, that bad?
W: That's right. It's really bad. I am really concerned though not panicked yet.
M: I don't blame you. The pastures have browned out even before the summer hasn't arrived.
W: Yeah, and the soil has been baked so hard that the plow can’t even break the soil.
M: Look like it's going to be an ongoing thing that would get worse each day.
W: Yeah. If it doesn’t rain, it’s going to get critical.
W: Excuse me. What time is it?
M: Yes, it’s half past nine.
W: Thank you very much.
M: My pleasure.
W: Do you have some time to have a little talk with me?
M: I am sorry. I am quite busy now.
M: What's the date today?
W: July 28th.
M: Why do we come to such an expensive restaurant? Is there anything special?
W: Today is your birthday.
M: Oh, my goodness! How could I ever forget that!
M: Tina, what day is today?
W: Let me think…
W: No. It's Wednesday.
W: Oh, my god!
M: What's the matter?
W: Oh, I should have attended a meeting this morning. I totally forgot it. What shall I say to the boss?
