I arrived at the park a little early for our neighborhood baseball game and I needed to kill some time. I decided to take a walk along one of the trails so I could look at the scenery. Suddenly, I came across a woman sitting under a tree.
Octavi: What a beautiful day to be at the park!
Irene: Oh, hi. Yes, it’s a nice day, isn’t it?
Octavi: You look comfortable sitting on the grass in the shade reading.
Irene: It’s a quiet spot away from the playground.
Octavi: Do you come here often?
Irene: Not too often. I come here every so often on the weekends.
Octavi: This is a great spot for a picnic. I saw a lot of people on the other side near the fountain, but this is much more peaceful.
Irene: Yeah, that’s why I like it here. Were you looking for the baseball field? It’s on the other side of the park.
Octavi: Yes, I know. I was just warming up with a little walk around the park. We have a baseball game starting in a half hour.
Irene: I saw some people practicing when I walked past the field earlier. I haven’t seen a baseball game in ages.
Octavi: Why don’t you come and watch? It should be a good game.
Irene: Maybe I will. Thanks for the invitation.
Octavi: No problem. Take care.
Irene: You, too.
