LESSON 49 DIALOGUE

– Sleeping in –

Lesson 49: Sleeping in

There is a knock on the door.

Kiera: Darren, are you still in bed?

Darren: No……Yes! What time is it?

Kiera: It’s 10:30. We have to be at the airport for 1 o’clock. I have already ordered the taxi.

Darren: Okay, I’ll get up in a minute. I have already packed so what’s the rush?

Kiera: Just get out of bed and stop being lazy!

Darren: Alright, alright! I’m getting up. I’m still sleepy… Do you still have some of that super strong coffee?

Kiera: Yes, there is some left. We will be able to buy some quality coffee in South America. Some real rocket fuel. Can I come in?

Darren: No, I’m getting dressed.

Kiera: Oh, I gave the spare keys to Rosie. I’m sure that she won’t need them. But just in case.

Darren: Uh huh!

Kiera: And I gave her a call an hour ago. She asked us to bring her a souvenir back, something that she can eat she said. Preferably something sweet. I think that she has forgotten all about her diet. And a thimble, she asked for a thimble. Who collects thimbles anymore?

Darren: Uh huh!

Kiera: Are you okay, Darren?

Darren: How about that coffee?

Kiera: I haven’t put the kettle on yet. I’ll do it now.

A few minutes later Kiera returns with a cup of coffee and knocks on the door. There is no answer.

Kiera: Darren….Darren…

Facts: Thimbles are simple, utilitarian objects worn to protect the finger-tip whilst sewing. The earliest thimble was Roman and found at Pompeii. It was made of bronze and dated to the first century AD.
