Edwin: Yes, I went down to the city.
Todd: Oh, you went to the city? Who did you gowith?
Edwin: I went with a couple of friends.
Todd: Oh, yeah. Were you guys going clubbing and going out?
Edwin: No, we just went shopping.
Todd: Shopping, really.
Edwin: Oh, yeah.
Todd: You don’t strike me as the shopping type.
Edwin: No, but it’s getting cold now, and I need some winter clothes.
Todd: That is true. That is true. So, what did you buy?
Edwin: I bought a jacket and a pair of warm trousers.
Todd: Oh, right, right. How much did you spend?
Edwin: I spent about a couple of hundred dollars.
Todd: Wow! That’s a lot.
Edwin: Yes, but I don’t want to freeze, so …
Todd: Right. So did you go on Saturday or Sunday?
Edwin: I went on Saturday.
Todd: Saturday. You didn’t stay overnight?
Edwin: No, I didn’t stay overnight. It was going to be too expensive if we stayed overnight.
Todd: Right, yeah. How did you get there by the way? Do you drive?
Edwin: No, we took the bus.
Todd: Oh, you took the bus.
Todd: I hate the bus.
Edwin: Yes, but unfortunately I don’t have a license so we have to take the bus.
Todd: Right, actually, I’m in the same boat, you know, I don’t have a license either, but when Igo to the city I always take the train. Have you ever taken the train?
Edwin: Ah, no, I have taken the train yet.
Todd: Oh, man you gotta take the train.
Edwin: How does it compare to the bus?
Todd: It’s so much better … well, it takes about the same amount of time.
Edwin: Oh, really.
Todd: It takes about two hours, but you can kind of walk around a bit, you know, it’s not ascramped. I kind of get motion sickness on the bus.
Edwin: But isn’t it more expensive on the train?
Todd: Well, actually, you can get four tickets for a hundred dollars, so it’s about twenty-fivedollars one way, and I think the bus is … you can get four tickets for eighty dollars, so it’s onlya little more expensive.
Edwin: I see, I see.
Todd: It does take a little bit longer though.
Todd: So anyway, what about Sunday? What did you do yesterday?
Edwin: Yesterday? Just walked around campus, and not much to do on Sunday. Sunday isusually my easy-going day.
Todd: Yeah, did you study?
Edwin: Yeah, later in the night. Daytime it’s usually … yeah, usually no studies during the day.
Todd: Yeah, did you wait until the last minute?
Edwin: Yeah, I’m that kind of person, so yes.
Todd: Yeah, me too, me too.
