Talking to a Friend

Talking to a Neighbour

Ethan: It’s a nice one! I myself am a collector, too. I collect coins.

Talking About Unusual Hobbies

Merlyn: What do you do for fun, Kyle?

I sometimes make prank calls, just for the fun of it!

Merlyn: OMG! That’s a weird hobby.

Kyle: It’s not really a hobby but I can’t help doing it from time to time.

Merlyn: Hmm...is that all you do for fun?!

Kyle: No, no. I also like to collect tea bag covers.

Merlyn: Err..you collect tea bags for fun?! Sorry to say pal, but it doesn’t sound that much fun either.

Kyle: What can I say? People are different...

Merlyn: Oh, I couldn’t agree more...
