Surfer: Hey, you two. What brings you guys out to the beach today?
Maria: Hi there! We decided to come to the beach to celebrate something really important that happened to us.
Mike: We also found out it was going to be a sunny day, so that helped.
Surfer: Far out! What are you two celebrating if I may be so bold to ask?
Maria: We just got engaged, yesterday!
Surfer: That's great to hear. Congratulations to the two of you!
Mike: Thank you.
Surfer: So, when is the wedding?
Maria: Not any time soon, we don't think.
Mike: We decided to hold off the wedding and enjoy being engaged for a while.
Surfer: Say, dude, that's totally alright. I've got some good friends who also decided to wait for their wedding. Like, what's the rush?
Mike: That's a neat surfboard you've got there.
Surfer: Thanks, man. It's my pride and joy.
Maria: How long have you been surfing?
Surfer: All my life. Ever since I was little boy, I wanted to surf these waves.
Mike: And I guess you're pretty good at it?
Surfer: Dude, I'm not really bragging because I'm the best on the West Coast, man.
Mike: Wow! That's impressive! Maybe you could give me a few pointers. Surfing has always seemed like fun.
Surfer: For sure! How about right now?
Surfer: Why not?
Mike: What do you think, Maria?
Maria: I think you should. I'll certainly have fun watching you.
Mike: Great! Let's give it a try!
Surfer: For sure, dude! Just follow me out there and we'll surf some waves.
(Mike falls into the ocean a few times, but he has a great teacher and is eventually able to stay up on his board. He successfully rides a couple of small waves.)
Mike: Hey, this isn't so hard once you get the hang of it.
Surfer: You're pretty good for a beginner.
Mike: Thanks for the lesson.
Surfer: Not a problem, dude. Maybe you could invite me to your wedding... when it finally happens, that is.
(Mike smiles at the surfer.)
Mike: Yes! That we can do... dude! For sure!
