(The phone rings.)
Lucy, it’s Jeff.
Lucy: Hey, welcome back. How was your vacation?
Jeff: Oh, it was great. The seven days in New York was a Blast.
Lucy: Oh, yeah? Did you do any sightseeing or just visit with friends?
Jeff: I got to do both, actually. First, I saw my friend Edmundo who just moved there. He hadn’t seen much of the city himself so we went to all the Tourist spots. We got a Guidebook and went to the major Museums, saw a Play, went to a Concert in Central Park, and took the Staten Island Ferry. We did all of that in a day and a half. It was a Whirlwind, but we got to see a lot.
Lucy: A day and a half?! You guys must have been Exhausted.
Jeff: Yeah, we were. But, the rest of my trip was pretty low key. My friends Pat and Billie Rented a car And we took a Road trip to Upstate New York to visit some other friends of ours.
Lucy: Did you have To stay over in a hotel Along the way, or did you Drive straight through?
Jeff: We didn’t bother with Booking hotel rooms so we just drove straight there. It wasn’t that far.
Lucy: How long did you stay there?
Jeff: We were only there two days and we Drove back And Got back Last night. My flight was this morning at 8 a. m. The worst part of the whole trip was that my flight was Cancelled. I was Rebooked onto another flight that had a three-hour Layover in Chicago. That was a Major pain.
Lucy: It sounds like it. Well, I’m glad you Made it back okay. And, you even have the weekend To rest up before work on Monday.
Jeff: Yeah, I’ll need it. I’ve got To catch up on my sleep!
