Sharon and Jack are at the shopping mall…
Sharon: I am still undecided about what to get my best friend, May for Christmas.
Jack: Shouldn’t shopping be easy at this point, seeing that you’ve been friends since elementary school?
Sharon: It isn’t, because May is such an adventurous person! She’s into trends, always trying new things, and the list goes on… She loves to travel and I never know where she is going to be monthly.
Jack: That does sound challenging. Why not buy her a new set of luggage?! I am sure that it’s time for a replacement seeing that she does travel a lot.
Sharon: That is a great idea! You are not only smart but perceptive… However, luggage can be quite costly and I am not sure that I am willing to spend a lot on luggage.
Jack: You are quite frugal.
Sharon: It’s not that I am frugal, but I have to be smart with my money. I have a lot of people to shop for! Christmas can get really expensive if one does not spend wisely.
Jack: I understand. Well, at least check out the luggage store. It’s that time of year again and they could be on sale.
Sharon: That’s a great idea! I open to it. Let’s go!
