Peter It’s half past six.

Cindy Sarah? She does judo on Tuesday evening now.
Ryan Judo? Wow, she really likes her sport.
Peter Yes, I know. She goes jogging every day and she always plays tennis at the weekend.
Ryan And now she does judo, too. Anyway, would you like a cup of coffee, Peter?
Peter Oh, er … no, thanks. I can’t stop. See you.

Cindy Well, he wants to see Sarah, but she isn’t here.
