Terry: So, what are you doing tonight?
Phil: I plan to go skating at the local park. They have a real nice rink there, very smooth.
Terry: Cool! I’ve never been into skating myself, but I have some friends who love it. Watch out for slips, trips and falls!
Phil: Oh don’t worry, I’m always extra careful when I have my skates on. By the way, I’m teaching my twelve-year-old nephew how to skate. It’s amazing how kids pick things up so quickly. He’s just been to the rink twice and he’s already getting the hang of it.
Terry: I know, kids are fast learners my friend! So, you’re into winter sports, right?
Phil: Oh, yeah! Besides skating I love to go skiing and snowboarding.
Terry: Skiing and snowboarding? Wow, I think I’d be afraid to do that. I guess it must be really difficult to keep your balance.
Phil: Well, it takes a lot of practicing and you do have to overcome your fear, but once you learn how to do it it’s a lot of fun.
Terry: I see, I prefer to have both my feet on the ground, if you know what I mean. Anyway I hope you enjoy yourself tonight at the rink.
Phil: I will, thanks! How about you? Are you doing anything tonight?
Terry: Yeah, I’m meeting some friends at a pub. I love to hang out with friends and shoot the breeze over beer.
Phil: Sounds good! Have fun!
