(Nora and Ethan are chatting.)
Nora: A dog walked onto the train while I was riding on the MRT this morning.
Ethan: Oh, really? Dogs need to be kept in bags or cages on the MRT, don't they?
Nora: Yes, they do, except for guide dogs.
Ethan: What are guide dogs?
Nora: They are dogs that are trained to lead and help the blind in their everyday lives.
Ethan: I see. Did you play with the dog?
Nora: Of course not. The dog was working, so I didn't touch it or play with it.
Ethan: By the way, do you know how long it takes to train a guide dog?
Nora: It usually takes two years to train one.
Ethan: Why do you know so much about guide dogs?
Nora: I read a book about them.
Hey, there's a new movie about a lawyer who fights for animal rights. I'm going to see it later. Do you want to join me?
Ethan: That'll be cool. Shall we meet at the theater?
Nora: Sure. Let's meet at seven o'clock on the dot?
Ethan: Oh, wait! I forgot I have to go to the dentist tonight. Sorry.
Nora: That's okay. Maybe some other time.
