Celeste: I’m so glad it’s Friday. Are you doing anything this weekend?
Ryan: I’m going snowboarding with James.
Celeste: Didn’t you guys go bungee jumping last weekend?
Ryan: Yeah, and we plan to go cave diving in a couple of weeks.
Celeste: I didn’t know you were into extreme sports. I guess it’s a big adrenaline rush.
Ryan: It is. But for me, it’s about pushing myself to the limit.
Celeste: Aren’t you afraid of getting hurt?
Ryan: Sure. There’s always a danger of getting hurt, but we don’t do these sports competitively. It’s just for fun. I like trying new stunts and seeing how far we can push the boundaries of the sport. Do you want to come with us sometime?
Celeste: Me? I’m not really the adventurous type.
Ryan: You never know. You might like it. After cave diving, we’ll probably try climbing.
Celeste: Oh, that doesn’t sound too bad. I’ve done some climbing before.
Ryan: I should tell you that we plan on going ice climbing.
Celeste: Oh. In that case, I think I’ll pass. Have fun this weekend.
Ryan: Thanks and let me know if you change your mind.
