  • Hey there. What have you been up to?

  • Nothing really.

  • How about your work?

  • It's so boring there. I really wish I had a different job.

  • Is it really that bad?

  • Yeah. Most of the time, I have nothing to do. But whenever I have something to do, it's boring work because it is the same old thing.

  • Why don't you find a different job then?

  • Maybe I should.

  • Hi Steve, what's your plan for tonight?

  • I don't have any plans. Are you doing anything special?

  • Well, if you're bored, let's plan on meeting up tonight.

  • That sounds like a good idea. Should we invite Bob?

  • He's a little boring.

  • What do you mean?

  • Well, he doesn't drink, play video games, pool, or really anything. The only thing he talks about is history.

  • You do have a point. We'll leave him out tonight.

  • Aright. Let's meet at 8:30 in front of the university bookstore.

  • Perfect. I'll see you later tonight.

  • Hello

  • Hi Jane

  • Oh, hi Jill.

  • What are you doing?

  • I'm doing the laundry.

  • I'm so bored. I have nothing to do.

  • Why don't you come over and help me with the laundry?

  • I'd rather do my own house chores. Hey, you wanna take a break from your house work and have coffee at Starbucks with me?

  • Sure, that sounds great. I'll meet you there in thirty minutes.
