Teresa: Hey Angela! Are you done shopping for gifts?
Angela: No,Teresa. I was so busy last week, I had tons of work to do. I haven’t done any shopping yet and Christmas is just around the corner.
Teresa: Why don’t you join me? I need to go shopping too. I used to go to Hamleys for toys, but the kids are all grown up now so I need to find another shop.
Angela: Yeah, your kids and mine are about the same age. We can find the gifts together.
