Steph:  I am so stoked that it’s Friday.

John:  Me too. This has been the hardest week!

Steph:  Really? It’s been long, huh?

John:  Oh yeah. But the weather’s been so nice. Hopefully it’ll carry over into this weekend.

Steph:  I know. Well it looks like there are a few, like clouds floating by. Ya know, just the really plain white ones. But it’s a good day for a barbeque maybe tomorrow.

John:  Oh. That’s a good idea. Do you have any plans like that?

Steph:  Well, I’m thinking about it. I dunno. I have some family coming into town, so maybe.

John:  I was thinking about going to the beach maybe. A friend of mine has a jeep. And go cruise around in the sand dunes.

Steph:  That would be sweet.

John:  Yeah. And have a campfire and camp out in the middle of nowhere. We’ll see.

Steph:  Awesome! Tell me about it next week.

John:  OK.
