“Hi Lisa, it’s Julie.”

“Oh hi Julie, how’s it going?”

“Good! Hey, my roommates and I are thinking of seeing a movie this weekend. Do you wanna come?”

“Sure! When are you going?”

“Either Friday night or Saturday afternoon – which one works better for you?”

“I can’t on Saturday, ’cause I have band rehearsal for our concert that night.”

“OK, we’ll do Friday then. Let’s meet outside the movie theater at 7:30.”

“Sounds good! See you then.”
