A: Hey, there’s Leo. I ⑴wonder why he’s ⑵walking arm in arm with that young woman.
B: ⑶It’s as plain as the nose on your face. They’re dating each other.
A: You’re ⑷pulling my leg! *She must be thirty years younger than Leo. Talk about ⑸robbing the cradle!
B: Well, *you can bet this relationship’s going to ⑹be a flash in the pan.
A: It ⑺must have been love at first sight because I know he didn’t have a girlfriend last week.
B: I think you are ⑻absolutely right. Actually, my father proposed to my mother after knowing her only two weeks. They got married a month later.
A: *You must be⑴pretty excited about your trip to Europe. When is it that you are leaving?
B: In just three weeks, and I am excited. But there are still ⑵a few things I need to do before I go.
A: ⑶Like what?
B: Like renewing my passport, going to the travel agency to buy my plane ticket and ⑷figuring out what to do with my apartment while I’m gone.
A: ⑸ You are not going to give it up, are you?
B: ⑹No way. I’ll never find another apartment around here. But ⑺I don’t like the idea of paying three months’ rent on an empty apartment, either.
A: I don’t blame you. *Perhaps you could ⑻sublet it.
B: Yes, but whom to?
A: Mmm…let me think. Oh, I know just a person. An old colleague of mine, Jim Thomas, is coming here to do some research this summer, from June to August.
B: That’s exactly when I’ll be away. It sounds ideal, as long as the landlord agrees.
A: ⑼Tell you what, I’ll be calling Jim late this week anyway, so I’ll mention it to him then.
B: Well, thanks, Bill. Let me know what happens. That extra money will really ⑽come in handy.
