A phone call between two young men
(The phone rings and a man wearing a yellow bicycle shirt answers.)
This is Matt.
|Wellington: Matt, my man! What’s up?|
This is Wellington.
|Matt: Not much, dude. What’s up with you?|
|Welington: Nothin. Say, I was just thinking about going over to Sarah’s to hang out if you want to come along.|
|Matt: Aww, dude! I’d love to but I have to work this afternoon.|
|Wellington: Well, that sucks.|
Matt: Yeah, but it’s okay ’cause I really need the cash.
|Wellington: Yeah, no kidding. You still owe me ten bucks, Dude. What time are you getting off?|
|Matt: I’ll be done around 10. I’m going over to The Dive after that. Meet me there.|
|Wellington: Okay, I’ll see you then. Talk to you later.|
Note: The word "Dude" is often used between friends in the United States. It simply means friend. It can have different meanings depending on the speaker’s intonation.
