Steph:  So how was the concert last weekend?

Em:  It was amazing!

Steph:  Who’d you see again?

Em:  I went to see four bands – one called Point Line Plank, one called the Sword’s Project, Shannon Wright and Firetheft.

Steph:  I’ve heard you talk about Shannon Wright before. What’s she like?

Em:  She’s so great. She rocks!

Steph:  Really?

Em:  Yeah, she really does.

Steph:  Where’s she from?

Em:  She’s from Georgia. I’m not sure exactly where in Georgia, but, yeah…

Steph:  Have you ever seen her play before?

Em:  I’ve seen her three or four times. And every time I see her she just blows me away.

Steph:  Really?

Em:  The first time I saw her was here in Portland. But then I saw her once in England too.

Steph:  Wow. Cool, have you ever met her?

Em:  Actually, I met her at the concert.

Steph:  Wow! That’s so cool.

Em:  I got really nervous, but the friend I was with kind of pushed me and made me go and, um, I noticed that she was in the bathroom so I kind of saw it as my opportunity to go in and tell her just how great she was.

Steph:  Fun!

Em:  Yeah I was nervous, but, I gushed a lot, but it was good.

Steph:  Cool

Em:  Yeah

Steph:  Good, well I’m glad you had a good time!
