Hi, Mary! It’s Alice. I’m calling to tell you that I won’t be able to join you for your shopping tour today. It wasmy grandma’s birthday yesterday and she asked me to drive her to the medical centre today. She has got anappointment with her doctor already and it cannot be put off. I’ll call you as soon as we get back home afterseeing the doctor.
Jane: Fancy going to the cinema this Sunday, Tom?
Tom: What’s on? Though it makes no difference. I’m sorry, Jane, I've got plans for this Sunday.
Jane: Lots of homework or someone’s birthday party?
Tom: Don’t you remember about the essay we need to give in on Monday?
Jane: I do. But the teacher told us to bring it back in a week. Not this Monday, next one.
Tom: That changes everything! I’ll write the essay next week then. And I’ll certainly go with you. I can buy thetickets beforehand if you want.
Julia: I’m really hungry. Aren’t you?
John: Oh, I had a big breakfast in the morning – fried eggs with beans and sausages… but… for some reason... Ifeel like eating too.
Julia: How about some cheese or ham sandwiches? Or spaghetti with tomato sauce?
John: Spaghetti is my favourite! I could eat it three times a day. Do you need any help with cooking it?
Julia: Yes… Oh, no! We’ve run out of spaghetti. Remind me to buy it when we are in the
supermarket… It looks like cheese sandwiches are the only option for us today.
John: Ok, then. You make the sandwiches, and I’ll make tea.
