Hi Friends!
Getting engaged is one of the most exciting things that can happen in one’s life. After deciding to get married, couples often have an engagement party to announce the engagement in front of their family and friends, and to celebrate the special occasion.
Miguel and John recently attended one of their best friend’s engagement party. Listen to their conversation to hear all about it.

Miguel:  So, did you have a good time at Zach’s party the other night?

John:  Yeah, I had a blast. It was great to see everybody.

Miguel:  Are you tripped out that he’s getting married, or does that just seem normal to you, or what?

John:  I think it’s great news. I think they make a wonderful couple and, and, uh, his fiancee is a great person.

Miguel:  Yeah, I think she’s really sweet. Were you there when, uh, his parents were making fun of him and, you know, sort of warning her about all the weird stuff he does?

John:  No. Was that before his dad pulled out the guitar and started singing Peter, Paul and Mary[/def] songs?

Miguel:  Yeah. It was actually right before that. They were just, you know, saying all the classic stuff about Zach and really trying to embarrass him, you know. But it, it’s just cool to see that whole family and friends all collected to celebrate, you know.

I’m so happy for Zach. He’s such a great person and he’s found such a great partner in life. Sayaka is one of the coolest people I’ve ever met. She’s smart, she’s very pretty and she’s a lot of fun to hang out with.
I can’t wait for the wedding! It will be so much fun!
Have a great week!
