Augie: Today’s the day. I’m giving you the heads up. Our company is rolling out its new line of cell phones.
Lillian: I can see you’re excited about it. What’s so special about the new products?
Augie: This line of phones has state-of-the-art technology and never-before-seen features. It’s been in development for over a year and it’s been really hard keeping it under wraps.
Lillian: I thought information was leaked weeks ago.
Augie: Those were just rumors, and the company put a clamp on those pretty quickly.
Lillian: Wasn’t the new line supposed to come out next month?
Augie: That was the original plan, but since McQ Corp. is coming out with its own line of phones soon, we wanted to get a jump on them.
Lillian: And steal their thunder.
Augie: Yes, and steal their thunder. We had to scramble to get the phones ready ahead of schedule, but I think it was worth it. They’re really going to make a splash.
Lillian: I hope so. I hope all of this hype has been justified.
Augie: Oh, it will be. I’ll know soon enough.
Augie: You’ll be begging me to get you one.
