Luisa: The battery on my computer is almost out of juice.
Allesandro: Did you bring a spare?
Luisa: It’s a rechargeable battery, so instead of replacing it, I need to plug it in, but there are no outlets in here.
Allesandro: I don’t see one either.
Luisa: Forget it. I’ll just finish watching the movie on my phone. Oh no, my phone battery is running low, too. It’s a high-capacity battery and is supposed to discharge slowly, giving me a full day of power. I don’t know what’s wrong with it.
Allesandro: Do you want to borrow my radio? At least you can listen to music for a while.
Luisa: A radio? You mean an old-fashioned radio?
Allesandro: Yeah, it uses disposable batteries and I brought plenty.
Luisa: No, thanks. I don’t think a radio will do me any good. Maybe there’s an emergency generator around here. I just need enough electricity to finish watching my movie.
Allesandro: I don’t think that will do you any good, and plus, the emergency generator is supposed to be used for emergencies and only in the event of a power failure.
Luisa: Exactly! What can be more of an emergency than not knowing how a movie ends?
