Kate: Murphy, aren’t you studying?
Murphy: I’ve just finished. Let me watch South Park!
Kate: I guess it’s your turn to clean the kitchen today.
Murphy: We had a deal, Kate. Don’t you remember the laundry?
Kate: Murphy, that deal is already done. I cleaned the carpets! You’d better clean up the kitchen now.
Murphy: Uff...!!! Alright! I’ll do that later. For now, let me watch TV.
Austen: My kids get on my nerves these days.
Lynn: Guess they are not kids anymore!
Austen: Guess not. Every time I tell them to do something, I get a ‘do it later’ reply!
Lynn: My kids say that, too. It’s a teenage problem.
Austen: I never did that when I was a teenager!
Lynn: Then probably you should do it now.
Austen: What do you mean?
Lynn: When your kids ask you for something, reply “I’ll do it later”.
Austen: Yeah, that might be a good solution.
Lynn: I’ve tried it and it brought me good results!
Lynn: Have you already fixed the car, Murphy?
Murphy: No, I was thinking about doing it later in the afternoon.
Lynn: You’ve been saying that since Monday!
Murphy: I promise! It’ll be done by evening. Have you ironed my clothes?
Lynn: No, I will do it later.
Murphy: Please stop saying that! I need to go out.
Lynn: Then go and fix the car right now!
Murphy: Okay! Okay! I got the message.
Kate: Austen, how are you?
Austen: I’m fine Kate! I was looking for you!
Kate: For me, why?
Austen: Can you review this article for me?
Austen: Actually, I was planning to submit it by this afternoon.
Kate: I need to cook something for the children. Will it be fine if I do it later?
Austen: It’s fine, I’m in no hurry.
Kate: Alright Austen. I’ll do it later for sure!
