Anna: Have a nice day at work Marsha!
Marsha: You too, Anna. Oh, wait. Do you have pen and paper I can borrow?
Anna: Of course.
Marsha: We are meeting at this restaurant tonight.
Anna: What is happening tonight?
Marsha: Today is my birthday. We are celebrating at 7pm tonight. Did you forget?
Anna: Sorry, Marsha! I gotta go! See you later!
Marsha: Don't forget! Tonight … 7pm!
Anna: I forgot Marsha’s birthday! And I don’t get my paycheck until next week. I know. I'll make her a gift. I’ll just have to borrow a couple of things.
Anna: Amelia, may I borrow your stapler?
Amelia: Sure. I can lend you my stapler, Anna. But please return it. It’s my favorite stapler.
Anna: You can trust me. I understand. One time, I loaned my stapler to the wrong person.
Anna: Thanks, Amelia.
Amelia: Don’t mention it. Bye, stapler!
Anna: Jonathan! Can I borrow your scissors?
Jonathan: Oh! Hi, Anna! What’re you doing?
Anna: Can I borrow your scissors? Sorry to bother you.
Jonathan: Yes, I can lend them to you, but you must return them. These scissors -- they are the sharpest scissors in the office. Watch.
Anna: Wow, those are sharp. I will be very careful.
Jonathan: Okay.
Anna: And I’ll bring them back tomorrow.
Jonathan: Good.
Anna: Thank you.
Jonathan: You're welcome.
Anna: Happy Birthday, Marsha! (gives Marsha a gift)
Marsha: Thanks, Anna! I love birthday gifts! Anna, it is … interesting. What is it?
Anna: Well, I know you love hats. And you need office supplies. So, this is your own office supply hat!
Marsha: Wow! That is a lot of office supplies!
Anna: Many people loaned or shared their supplies with me. Some people really love their office supplies. It has paper, pens, tape, erasers, rubber bands, binder clips, paper clips, and a light!
Marsha: What is the balloon for?
Anna: The balloon will help your friends find you. Let’s try it! You get a seat in the restaurant - I will find you!
Anna: Sometimes all the money in the world can’t buy the perfect gift. Until next time!
