1. Getting a Ride

A: Were you invited to Mary's party this weekend?

B: Yes I was. Why do you ask?

A: I was wondering if you could give me a ride.

B: Where do you live?

A: I live one block away from the school.

B: Okay, that's not too far.

A: By what time should I be ready?

B: Well, when does the party start?

A: The invitation says at 5 p.m.

B: I'll pick you up at 4:15. Parties always start a little late.

A: Thank you. I'll buy you a coffee to make up for it.

B: That sounds great! Let's go.
