(Kevin and John are talking on the balcony of Kevin's house.)
Kevin: Do you think it's stupid to go on a date with somebody you have only chatted with online?
John: I don't think so, but it might be dangerous if you go alone. People can cheat easily on the Internet. Why did you ask?
Kevin: Well. A girl I met on the Net asked me out.
John: Wow! Did you say yes?
Kevin: Sure, her name is Elisa. We'll meet this Saturday. But I feel nervous. What if she thinks I'm boring?
John: Take it easy, Kevin. Cross the bridge when you come to it. Can I go with you?
Kevin: No way!
(Three days later, at school)
John: You look unhappy. What happened?
Kevin: My date was terrible. When I got to the restaurant, I pulled the door open...
John: And suddenly you were pushed aside by a girl.
Kevin: I couldn't believe she was Elisa. She was polite when we chatted online.
John: And she kept playing with her cellphone during the meal.
Kevin: Right. Wait! It seems that you know the whole story. How?
John: Uh... Don't get mad, please. I followed you to the restaurant that day.
