Man: Wow! That’s a bit pricey, isn’t it? The flight is only an hour long. 

Woman: That’s true. But I checked the prices and decided I could afford it especially since I put it on my credit card so I can take the rest of the year to pay for it if I want.

Woman: Yes, I can’t wait to see them.

Woman: Ah right, I forgot. I wanted to ask him. I need him to check my figures on the monthly report, but I guess it can wait.

Woman: That’ll be plenty of time. I don’t need to make the final copies until tomorrow. 

Questions 62-64 refer to the following conversation

Man: I’m going down to the cafeteria for a quick lunch. Will you join me? 

Woman: No, thanks. I don’t really care for the food there. I brought a sandwich from home, but while you’re down there, could you get my mail from the mail room? I’m expecting a package. 

Man: Sorry, but I won’t be coming back right away. I’ve got an appointment with a client at 2. It’s all the way downtown. I plan to take the bus so I’ll be gone for a while. 

Woman: Oh, okay then. Nevermind. I’ll get it myself.

Woman: I’m in the mood for soup. What do you recommend? 

Man: The carrot beef is good. Oh, but you’re a vegetarian. 

Woman: Right, but here’s a soup I can try. I’ll take that. Do you want to sit on the patio? The view of the park looks nice. 

Man: It’s getting late. I think we better just take our food back to work and eat at our desks.
