Frank: So, how was your vacation?
Brandy: Oh! This was the best vacation I’ve ever had in my life!
Frank: Wow! Where did you go?
Brandy: We went to the Bahamas. It’s such an amazing place.
Frank: Really? Did you go with your parents?
Brandy: Of course not! I went with my cousins. We had a blast!
Frank: I can imagine that. Did you take any pictures?
Brandy: Yes. I’ll be uploading them to Facebook today. You can check them out.
Frank: That’d be great!
Duke: Why is all this work still pending?
Frank: What do you mean?
Duke: You promised to complete all the assignments during the holidays! What did you do in the holidays then, if not this?
Frank: Well, I didn’t have enough time to work on the assignments. My brother had an accident and I had to be with him at the hospital.
Duke: Alright, but, you’d better complete them by the weekend. If you miss the deadline you won’t get good grades.
Jerry: How were your holidays?
Duke: Totally amazing! I needed that break.
Jerry: Where did you go?
Duke: We took a boat trip to Koh Samui.
Jerry: Koh Samui is a really peaceful place. It must’ve been quite relaxing.
Duke: Oh, yeah! After all the hectic schedules and tough life, it’s good to have a peaceful vacation. All I got was blue sea and clear sky!
Jerry: I need a break myself. Going to apply for a 7-day leave today. Let’s see if the boss approves it.
Duke: I hope he does. You’ve worked very hard on your last project.
Brandy : Hey Jerry! Glad to see you’re back. How were the hols?
Jerry : Don’t ask, Brandy! I’ve had better holidays.
Brandy : Why? What happened?
Jerry : It was a series of disasters. Seriously.
Brandy : Really, Jerry?
Jerry : Yep. My flight got delayed 7 hours. Then the taxi to the hotel broke down.
Brandy : Goodness!
Jerry : The hotel was terrible. The food was awful.
Brandy : I’m sorry to hear that, Jerry. It all sounds so bad!
Jerry : But that’s not all, Brandy. I got sick from the bad food and couldn’t go out of the hotel room for 3 days.
Brandy : Gosh, Jerry! You’ve had the most awful vacation ever!
Jerry : I know, Brandy. It was hell.
