Lucy: Hey Jeff, have you met my friend?
Jeff: No, I don't think I have.
Lucy: Well, this is my oldest and best friend, Marlene. She's visiting from out of town.
Jeff: Hi, I'm Jeff.
Marlene: Hi, it's nice meeting you.
Jeff: How long do you plan to be in town?
Marlene: I'm here for the long weekend, staying with Lucy. We're doing some catching up and I'm getting a break from work.
Jeff: Oh, what line of work are you in? Are you in the same field as Lucy?
Marlene: No, I'm in medicine. I'm a doctor actually, a pediatrician. I enjoy the work but it's nice to get away for a few days. What kind of work do you do?
Jeff: I work in the education field but what I really want to do is to become a professional singer.
Lucy: Jeff has a great voice. He sounds exactly like Frank Sinatra.
Jeff: No, she's just kidding and Lucy knows that I can't sing. We went to a karaoke bar once and people actually offered me money NOT to sing.
Lucy: That was a lot of fun. We should do that again sometime.
Jeff: Sure, anytime. Oh, I'd better go. It was nice meeting you Marlene, and Lucy, I'll talk to you next week.
Marlene: Nice to meet you, too.
Lucy: Okay, later.
