        Woman: We could ask for a better day, could we?

        Man: I know. There isn't a cloud in the sky. I love this time of year.

        Woman: Me too. The cherry blossoms are beautiful, you think?

        Man: They sure are. But I heard he is calling for rain all weekend.

        Woman: Really? Oh well. I have to work all weekend anyway. I'm a doctor.

        Man: Wow. I'm sure you make good money with that diamond watch you have on.

        Woman: Ah, this bus seems to be running late. How long of a wait is it already?

        Man: I've been here for at least fifteen minutes now.

        Woman: Where are you heading today?

        Man: Actually, I'm going to the City Hall to cast my vote for mayor.

        Woman: Oh, what a coincidence. So am I! Who are you voting for?

        Man: Um, well...I'm still thinking about it.

        Woman: Here comes a bus now.

        Man: Oh good. Wait, that's not the bus we want. That bus goes downtown.

        Woman: Well, it looks like we'll be waiting a little longer. I guess, I'll use this time to catch up on my reading.

        Man: I love reading. Right now I'm reading a Stephen King book. Do you like Stephen King?

        Woman: Not really.

        Man: Oh, here's our bus.

        Woman: Oh great. I thought it would never come. Well, have a nice day.

        Man: Say, did you catch the news today?
