Kathy: Hi, Molly. Where’s your brother Larry? I thought he was joining us.
Molly: Hi, Kathy. I’m sorry. Larry can’t join us after all. He is working late tonight.
Kathy: Oh, Larry’s working late again?
Molly: Yeah, he is. Kathy: I see…I really don’t think sixteen-year-olds should be allowed to work at night. Young people need to sleep.
Molly: Oh, I disagree with you. Teenage boys never get tired.
Kathy: Well, maybe. But Larry shouldn’t work every night.
Molly: That’s true. He needs time to do homework.
Kathy: And you know, Molly…he should really cut his hair.
Molly: Oh, I don’t know. Do you think it’s too long?
Kathy: Yes, I do. It doesn’t look clean. And I think he should stop wearing that silly earring.
Molly: Hmm…I disagree. I kind of like it. It looks cool!
Kathy: You know another thing that worries me? Larry doesn’t seem to have many friends.
Molly: Yeah, I know. I think he shouldn’t work on weekends.
Kathy: That’s right. He needs to spend time with friends.
