33. Antique Shopping (B)


Maria: Wow, this place is huge. Look at all these antiques. There's so much to look at.
Mike: You can say that again. It sure smells funny in here.
Janet: I love the smell of antique furniture. I'm going to go browse on my own if that's okay with you two.
Maria: Go ahead, mom. Me and Mike will be around looking. Just don't get lost in the store.
Janet: Hey, that used to be my line.
(Maria laughs at her mom's remark. Mike and Maria walk towards another direction.)
Mike: How long has your mother liked antique shops?
Maria: For as long as I can remember.
Mike: Does she ever actually buy any of these old things?
Maria: She buys antiques all the time. You should see her house. The place is littered with antiques.
Mike: What does your dad think about it?
Janet: He thinks it's a waste of money. But he is supportive of her hobby.

Mike: I don't understand how antiques can cost more than actual new things. Look at this sofa, for example.
(Mike shows Maria the price tag.)
Mike: You can get a new and better couch for a lesser price at a furniture store.
Maria: Mike, I don't think you understand antique shopping. It's just a hobby you acquire.
Mike: An expensive hobby.
Maria: That's for sure.
(One hour passes by and Janet decides to buy an antique lamp. She finds Mike and Maria.)
Janet: I'm ready to leave if you two are.
Mike: That's a nice lamp you got there. Do you mind if I take a look at it.
(Janet hands Mike the lamp.)
Mike: I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to buy this lamp for you, Janet as a parting gift.
