Hanna: It’s finally snowing outside! Soon we’ll be able to get out the sled.

Ahmed: Sledding is for kids. I’m going downhill skiing as soon as there’s enough powder. I can’t wait to feel the wind in my hair as I careen down the side of a mountain.

Hanna: You’re more likely to be on the bunny slopes! You’ve only been on a snowmobile once and gone cross-country skiing a few times. What makes you think you’ll be able to ski the slopes like an expert?

Ahmed: I can ice skate better than you can, so no matter what, I know I’ll be better at it than you’ll be. When I get the hang of skiing, I’ll probably try snowboarding.

Hanna: Now I know you’re blowing smoke. You don’t have the nerve.

Ahmed: Oh, yeah? I challenge you a game of one-on-one ice hockey.

Hanna: You’re twice my size! Make it a snowball fight.

Ahmed: You’re on!
