|Don:||Hi Sara, how is your day so far?|
|Sara:||Hey Don, I’m kind of shocked with the news I’ve been hearing these days!|
|Don:||Is that right? What news exactly?|
|Sara:||There are so many crimes that have been happening recently. The last one I heard of was about a mom killing her three children. It just froze my blood. I can’t imagine how someone could do that?|
|Don:||Yeah, I hear you. We hear of such crimes a lot lately!|
|Sara:||Unfortunately, it’s true. Anyway, I wanted to ask you if you have resolved your problems with your roommate?|
|Don:||No, I think we will do that when hell freezes over! He’s such a difficult person to get along with. I’m seriously thinking of moving out.|
|Sara:||Oh, sorry to hear that! Maybe, it would be a good idea to put your conversation with him on ice for the time being until both of you think it over and cool down. What do you think?|
|Don:||I guess you are right! How was your presentation last week?|
|Sara:||Oh, it just didn’t go that well. I’m not really sure what happened; as soon as I saw everyone staring at me I froze up and forgot what I was going to say. I had to ask my teacher to reschedule my presentation for next Friday.|
|Don:||Was that okay with her?|
|Sara:||Oh yes, it was. She’s really nice! She allowed other students to do the same and reschedule, so she was kind enough not to leave me out in the cold.|
|Don:||Glad to hear that!Just take it easy and practice a lot more in front of a mirror.|
|Sara:||That’s a great idea! Thanks, Don.|
