Story Interlude: Buying Gas

Larry: OK... and we’re off the air.

So, Kathy, did you take the subway to work today?

Kathy: Yes, I sure did.

SFX: door opening, footsteps

Eliz: Hi, everyone.

Kathy: Hi, Elizabeth.

Eliz: So you take the subway now, huh?

I wish I could. But there isn’t a station near my home.

So I drive to work.

Larry: You live in Virginia, don’t you?

Eliz: Yes. I drive about thirty miles a day--each way.

I’m always buying gas.

But I’m really glad I can use my credit card at the gas pump.

Kathy: At the pump?

Eliz: Yes. With the new gas pumps, you just insert your credit card.

Then you put the gas in the car -- and go!

It’s very quick, and you don’t have to pay...

Kathy: ... until the credit card bill comes. (laughs)

Eliz: Right.

Kathy: Oh, that’s great.

Eliz: Err…not if you see how much I spend on gas!

Oh! It’s time to start my show.

Max: OK. See you later.

NDE Closing

Kathy: Good luck in your English studies!

Kathy and Max: Good-bye.
