Hello Ralph, what a pleasant surprise! Haven`t run into you for ages!
It really is. It was good to see you. You`ve changed so much.
Happy to see you, too. How`s your family?
Pretty good. Thank you.
Oh, by the way, I would like you to know my friend John. John, this is my buddy Ralph.
How do you do?
How do you do?
Anthony : Mandy, did you know Heather called you?
Mandy : No. When did she call?
Anthony : Two hours ago, I think.
Mandy : Two hours ago? Why didn't you tell me earlier?
Anthony : Sorry, I forgot.
Mandy : What did she say?
Anthony : She said she's waiting for you at her sister's place.
Mandy : OK, I was going to cook dinner first, but I don't think I have enough time now. I'll just warm up someleftovers(剩饭) in the microwave.
Anthony : OK.
Mandy : If she calls again tell her I'm gonna to be late.
Anthony : OK, no problem.
Mandy : This is very important. Don't forget.
Anthony : Don't worry. I won't forget.
Mandy : Actually, would you please hand me my phone? I think I should give her a call now. She's probably wondering where I am.
Anthony : Sure, I'll get it for you.
Mary: hi, Larry, how was your weekend?
Larry: not bad. We had a get-together with friends from college. I haven't seen many of them since gradution. How about you?
M: great. I hung out with jo all day shopping, and the went out for dinner together.
L: sounds a good weekend. You know it always amazes me that two people as different as you and Jo can become such close friends.
M: yeah, I never thought we could be good friends either. We have our differences. She's more outgoing and active while I am more quiet and reversed, but we still get along extremely well. We can talk for hours about anything.
L: that's great. I know people who can't stand each other for even five minutes.
M: when Jo and I are together, we argue a lot, but that's also part of the fun. Besides, I know she will always be there for me when I need her, and she knows I'll be there for her.
L: it seems you two bring out the best of one another.
M: exactly. Having Jo as my friend is one of the best things that's ever happened to me.
L: yeah, you are so lucky to have found each other.
M: thanks, I think so too.
