(At John's house)
John: Grandma, our school band won the national music contest!
Mrs. Evans: That's wonderful! Are you going to celebrate?
John: Yes. We're going to eat at a steak house tomorrow.
Mrs. Evans: Aren't you tired of eating steak?
John: I am, but most of our members aren't. Some of us voted for fast food, and only one of us voted for Japanese food.
Mrs. Evans: I see. Will Amy go with you?
John: Sure. Both of us are members of the band.
(The students are reading the menu at the steak house.)
Waitress: May I take your order?
John: Yes. I'd like the ham sandwich with French fries.
Amy: Shouldn't we wait until Ms. Chen comes?
John: She told us not to wait for her.
Amy: Oh, that's right. OK... I'd like the steak with beans, please.
Waitress: How would you like your steak?
Amy: Medium, please.
Waitress: Anything else?
John: I'd also like the spaghetti and an ice cream.
Amy: That's a lot of food. Can you ﬁnish it all?
John: Sure. I'm so hungry. I spent the whole morning working out.
Amy: No wonder!
