第10课：偷得浮生半日闲 ACT 2-1 我得打个电话
Susan: Hi, Michelle. Hello, Harry. It's nice to see you again.
Harry: Hi, Susan. We have both been excited about seeing you and having lunch with you today.
Michelle picked these flowers out for you.
Michelle: Daddy, can we go soon?
Harry: We're going to go to lunch in a few minutes, honey.
Michelle: But I'm thirsty.
Harry: OK. You go out and get a drink of water at the fountain.
Susan: The fountain is over there, Michelle. Near the Exit sign.
Michelle: Thank you.
Harry: Michelle is a little shy.
Susan: I used to be that way when I was her age. Harry, if Michelle doesn't want to go, we don't have to.
Harry: She'll be fine. Remember, I haven't dated anyone else since her mother died. This is a little difficult for her. Are you ready to go?
Susan: Yes. But could you wait one minute? I have a call to make. Would you excuse me? Sam, get Mr. Levine at Toytown Stores on the telephone for me, please.
Sam: Right. Hello. Susan Stewart calling Mr. Levine, please. He's on the phone.
Susan: Mr. Levine, Susan Stewart. I find myself in an embarrassing situation. I made another lunch date for today and forgot to enter it in my appointment book. Can you and I meet for drinks tomorrow? I'd really appreciate it …Yes…Thank you…Tomorrow at five o'clock at the Biltmore. I'll see you then. Thank you, Mr. Levine.
