Mark: Hi there. Nice day, isn't it?
Anne: Oh, yes, very nice.
Mark: Do you often come out here this early?
Anne: Usually. I like to stay in shape.
Mark: I do too. I usually get up around five o'clock.
Anne: Oh, really?

a great aerobics program on TV at six.
Anne: No kidding. I guess you really do like to stay in
Mark: Hey, three days a week I go straight to my health
club after work.
Anne: Wow. What do you do the other two evenings?
Mark: Tuesdays and Thursdays, I'm on the old tennis
courts by five-thirty.
Anne: Well, after all that exercise during the week,
what do you do over the weekend?
Mark: Saturdays and Sundays are my days for team sports.
Nancy: Hi, Anne. Are we late?
Anne: Oh, no, Nancy. You're . . . right on time. Hi,
Terry: Are you ready for a couple more miles?
Anne: Sure. Say, . . . would you like to join us?

time today. Sorry.
Anne: OK. Well, bye-bye. Have a nice day!
Mark: (to new person) Hi there. Nice day, isn't it?
