"Let’s order a pizza," said Alice. There’s nothing to eat in the refrigerator, so …

"That’s a great idea," said Tom.

Tom called the local pizzeria. It’s his favorite place for ordering pizza.

"Luigi’s Pizza," said the woman who answered the phone.

"Hi," said Tom. "I’d like to order a large pizza with pepperoni and mushrooms.

"Okay," said the woman. "Is this for pickup or delivery?"

"I’m going to pick it up," said Tom.

The woman put Tom on hold. When she returned she told him the cost of the pizza and the time it would be ready.

"That’ll be sixteen dollars and 45 cents. It’ll be ready in about 20 minutes. What’s the name for the order?"

"My name is Tom."

"Okay, Tom. Thanks for calling."

"Okay, thanks."
