Steph:  I saw the funniest movie over the holidays.

Derek:  What movie was it?

Steph:  It was a movie called Dodgeball. Have you seen it?

Derek:  I have not seen that. Is it good?

Steph:  Well, it’s one of those kind of stupid-funny movies, if you know what I mean.

Derek:  I know exactly what you mean.

Steph:  Yeah. I mean, there’s a lot of good one-liners and, um, ya know, there were some morals to be learned.

Derek:  I see. So it’s a, ah, it’s a good Ben Stiller movie.

Steph:  Yeah. Ben Stiller. It’s a perfect movie for him. He was in it actually.

Derek:  Wow. That’s pretty cool.

Steph:  Yeah. He was one of the main stars. So, it was good. And I liked it so much that I think I’m gonna join the dodgeball team.

Derek:  The local dodgeball team?

Steph:  Yep.

Derek:  Sounds like fun.

Steph:  I know. I’ll let you know if we win.

Derek:  OK. Don’t get hurt.

Steph:  OK.

Seriously, this movie is great! The game looked like so much fun, too. Imagine throwing balls at the opposing team.
And these aren’t balls that can hurt you. They are bouncy, rubber balls.
Do you know what dodgeball is? Have you ever played it? You should go find out about it!
