Hey, Helen. Why don’t you take a break and play this online game with me?
Thanks, but I can’t waste time tonight.
What’s so important?
I have to hand in this report first thing tomorrow morning.
Come on, Helen, just a few minutes won’t hurt.
I know you, Gary. A few minutes ends up becoming a few hours.
You’re such a serious student, Helen.
Yes, I am. That’s how I get good grades.
Amy, check out this website photo. This is my piano teacher from my school days.
WOW, she’s an elegant lady.
Yes. Her name was Ms. Stravinsky. Like the composer, but she’s not related to him.
When did you start playing the piano, Dad?
hen I was about 13. I stopped after a few years, though.
You should start playing again. Oh, what time is it?
It’s 3:55. Hurry, you’re going to be late for your piano lesson!
Roxy, take a look at this salmon pie. Hot out of the oven!
WOW, Dad, it looks and smells delicious!
Yes, the pastry’s nice and golden brown. You know, this was one of Prince Philip’s favorite dishes.
Really? So, it’s perfect for Mom’s birthday dinner tonight.
Exactly. I’m sure she’s going to love it.
We had better clean up the kitchen before Mom gets back.
Right. I’ll do it. Can you set the table, Roxy?
So, Riko, how does Hannah like the princess costume you made?
Of course, she loves it. It’s much better than the costumes in the stores.
Yes, I know. I looked everywhere for a purple costume, so we had no choice.
Well, this is the last time I’m doing this. So, when can you be at the school?
I should be able to get there by five.
Great. I’ll save some Halloween candy for you, dear.

Who was it?
It was Mom. She’ll be back soon , so we’d better clean up this mess.
Otherwise, she’ll never allow us to use the kitchen again.
Hi. Where do we have the meeting today?
Actually, something urgent came up. So, I’m afraid we’ll have to reschedule the meeting.
When would be most convenient for you?
