Conversation taking place in a school setting
Student A : Good morning, Gabby!
Student B : Morning, Anne. How was your weekend?
Student A : It was bad, I came down with a fever and stomach flu, so I had to stay in bed.
Student B : I’m sorry to hear that.
Student A : I heard you went for a hike over the weekend, how was it?
Student B : It was so fun, but also extremely tiring. I went with my brother and his friends, we walked uphill for a total of 20-miles. I almost gave up but I am very glad I didn’t because the view was just breathtaking and there was actually a waterfall and a huge beautiful lake we could swim in. We had so much fun hiking and camping there.
Conversation taking place at home
Mother : What time did you come home last night?

Son : I know, but my school’s football team had an important match last night and I could not miss it since I am one of the key players.
Mother : But there was no way your football match would last until midnight!
Son : We won and we had to celebrate with the rest of the crew, mom. What did you expect me to do? I couldn’t just grab my belongings and went home after winning the match.
