Norman: I gulped down some beers at the party, that’s all! But I’m completely in control.
Anna: Norman, you didn’t use to drink. Why are you doing this to me now?
Norman: I’m sorry, honey! I didn't do it intentionally.
Anna: Promise me that you’ll never drink again.
Norman: I promise Anna. I won’t drink anymore.
Eric: Anna, did you drive all the way home alone at night?
Anna: Yes, I had no choice!
Eric: You could’ve come in the morning! Why the rush?
Anna: Norman is not at home and I heard about your breakup.
Eric: But that doesn’t mean you should drive three hours in the middle of the night all alone! Don’t you watch the news?
Anna: I’m sorry.
Eric: Anna, promise me now that you won’t do such a reckless thing again.
Anna: Alright. I promise, I won’t drive alone at night anymore.

Anna: Oh dear! I’m so sorry, I forgot!
Suzie: Oh, c’mon Anna! I reminded you just a few moments before you left!
Anna: Sorry Suzie, I promise I’ll bring it next time, Ok?
Suzie: Alright! But I don’t think they’ll be puppies anymore by then!
Anna: I’ll go next month. Don’t worry dear!
Suzie: Okay, but don’t forget your promise.
Norman: Hello Eric, how do you feel, how’s your health?
