A I’m going to have a coffee. What do you want?
B I’ll have an orange juice.
A What about Sally and Tim?
B Get them orange juice too. They said they were thirsty.
A Are you sure? I thought Sally wanted tea.
B No, she wanted something cold.
A Ok, then.
A Shall we stop and have something to eat?
B I don’t want anything to eat. But let’s stop – I’d like some water and I need to go to the toilet.
A Aren’t you hungry? It’s lunchtime – I’m starving.
B No, I really don’t want anything.
A You’re not on a diet, are you?
B No, but I’m not feeling 100 percent. It must be something I ate last night.
A It’s a pity Robertson isn’t still playing for us. He was much better than the players we’ve got now.
B Yeah, he was amazing.
A What happened to him, do you know?
B He retired. I think he opened a pub.
A No, that was Gallagher. He opened a pub in Leeds.
B Oh yes, that’s right. I remember now. Robertson’s working as a coach at Liverpool. With the junior team, the 16-year-olds.
A Oh really? Well, I think he’d be a good coach.
A Where are you going?
B Just for a run. I won’t be long.
A Well, don’t be late for lunch. Remember my mum’s coming.
B Oh right. Anyone else or just your mum?
A Your sister’s coming – don’t you remember?
B Oh yeah, that’s right. I’m glad Ann’s coming. I think she’ll get on well with your mum. Do you need any help with the lunch?
A I’m OK for the moment but I will later. So don’t be too long.
B Right, I’ll be about 20 minutes.
A We must get Olivia a present. It’s her birthday next week.
B Why don’t we just give her some money?
A Oh come on – that’s so impersonal. It’s her 21st birthday and she’s our only granddaughter.
B Well, you choose something for her then.
A That’s so typical. I have all the work of going and finding something.
B Well, then give her money like I said before. We’re not her generation. We don’t know what kind of things she likes.
A Speak for yourself. I think I’ll get her a sweater.
B She never wears sweaters.
A Oh, you’re so helpful!
B. You will hear a man phoning to book a tennis court. Complete the information on the secretary’s form.
