John:  So Jenny. You must be really happy that school’s out.

Jenni:  Yeah, I’m pretty stoked. Finals were rough and it’s been a long quarter, so I’m glad summer’s here.

John:  What was your toughest final?

Jenni:  I think it was my programming class. I got a C+ in that class, but it was on a curve so it should have been a D.

John:  Yeah, and you passed, right?

Jenni:  I passed.

John:  Well, that’s good. Have you started working yet?

Jenni:  I started working this week, making lots of money. I’ve got another job, too, where I’m just working for fun. How about you?

John:  Um, you know, just working here at English, baby! It’s a lot of hours, but it’s a lot of fun, so that’s cool.

Jenni:  Cool.

John:  How about, uh, vacations? Are you going anywhere?

Jenni:  Yeah, I’m headed to the coast this weekend. I’m pretty stoked. There’s going to be hot tubs and swimming pools and all that.

John:  Oh, that will be really fun, and the weather is supposed to be so nice.

Jenni:  Uh-huh, beautiful. How about you? Any plans for vacation?

John:  Yeah, I’m going to go to Japan here in a couple of days. I can’t wait.

Jenni:  Oh, wow!
