Daniela: I got our lottery tickets during my lunch break. The jackpot is up to $168 million. Imagine if we won.
Boris: Thanks for getting mine, too. When is the drawing?
Daniela: Saturday at 6 PM. It’s being televised on channel 4.
Boris: What would you do if you had $168 million?
Daniela: The first thing I would do is quit my job! No more slaving away for me. What would you do?
Boris: If I were rich, I would travel around the world. If I were younger, I’d learn how to fly a plane. I’ve always wanted to do that.
Daniela: It’s never too late. You could still do that.
Boris: You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. I’d probably just retire and buy myself a nice new house.
Daniela: Yeah, that sounds nice. I suppose I’d have a lot of family and friends asking for money.
Boris: I know I would. I can just see them coming out of the woodwork and pestering me. Maybe winning the lottery isn’t such a good thing.
Daniela: You’re right. It’s a curse. When you win, you can give me all of the money.
Boris: Yeah, right. Don’t hold your breath!
