Margo: Oh geez, you’re drenched! It wasn’t supposed to rain today.
Ali: I know. I looked at the weather report last night and it was supposed to be a nice day. That’s the last time I trust those weathercasters! I hate getting caught in the rain. I’m soaking wet.
Margo: When I felt a raindrop on my head this morning, I should have known that we were in for a big rainstorm. Right then, I should have gone back into my house to get an umbrella, but as usual, I was running late.
Ali: I can’t believe I have to go out on sales calls today. I’m not looking forward to getting back in my car when it’s raining cats and dogs out there.
Margo: Somebody in this office must have an umbrella you can borrow for the day. I’ll go see.
Ali: Thanks. It looks like it’s only drizzling now. Maybe it’s letting up.
Margo: Don’t count on it. It’ll be pouring again in a minute. Let me see if I can round up an umbrella and maybe even a raincoat.
Ali: Thanks. I’ll be in the bathroom wringing out my clothes. What a miserable day!
