Anna: Hello! I have great news. My best friend from my hometown is coming here -- to Washington, D.C.! I can’t wait to catch up with her! Oh! I gotta go. Her train arrives in 10 minutes!
Anna: Penelope!
Penelope: Anna! I am really happy to see you!
Anna: Me too! How was your trip?
Penelope: It was fine.
Anna: Let me help you with your bags.
Penelope: I’m really excited to be in Washington, D.C.! I can’t wait to hear about … everything!
Anna: I have so much to tell you. Let’s go to my apartment. We can talk over a hot cup of tea.
Penelope: I love your apartment building, Anna. Is your rent expensive?
Anna: Well, I have a roommate. So, we split the rent.
Penelope: Oh, that’s right. Is your roommate nice?
Anna: Marsha is the nicest person I know in this city. Sometimes she worries too much. And she says I’m the messiest cook she knows. But we are great roommates.
Penelope: So, Anna, is it hard to make friends in D.C.?
Anna: At first it was hard. But now, Marsha is a good friend. And there’s Pete. Of all the people I know in D.C., Pete is the most serious and also the silliest.
Penelope: He sounds … interesting.
Anna: Jonathan and Ashley are two other good friends of mine. In the city, they are the friendliest people I know. They always help me when I need it.
Penelope: Your friends sound great! So, tell me about your job.
Anna: I love my work! I make a children’s show called the “Time Traveling Treehouse.”
Penelope: Anna, that is the best job for you! Do you remember when we were little? We played in that old treehouse behind my family’s house for hours!
Anna: I forgot about that! We thought it really time traveled! Penelope, it is really good to talk to you. New friends are good. But old friends are the best.
Penelope: I know. Our hometown isn’t the same now. You are not there.
Anna: No crying. Why don't you move here and live with me and Marsha?
Penelope: Anna, I can’t leave our hometown. You forget -- I love my job, too.
Anna: I didn’t forget. You are the most famous turkey farmer I know!
Penelope: Thanks, Anna.
Anna: Come on. Let’s go eat dinner at one of D.C.’s most famous restaurants.
Penelope: Awesome!
Anna: That’s the restaurant, Penelope. I’ll be right there.
Anna: I have a great apartment. I love my work. And I have awesome friends -- both old and new. I am the luckiest woman in Washington, D.C.
(sound of thunder)
Anna: Until next time ?
