John : Do you have any siblings?
Sam : Yes. I have a younger brother. What about you?
John : I have quite a big family with 2 brothers and 2 sisters!
Sam : Wow, a big family… I’d have liked a sister too.
John: Yes, my sisters are very nice. They’re kind and smart. I feel lucky to be their brother.
Sam: What a nice thing to say!
Sam : So you were gone visiting your grandpa last weekend?
Joanna : Yup! My grandfather must be in his late 80’s and he’s very active.
Sam : Wow! That’s great! What about your grandma?
Joanna : She’s a very sprightly old woman too. In fact my grandparents from my mother’s side are pretty healthy and active themselves.
Sam : That’s really good to hear. Your folks know how to take care of themselves.
Joanna : Yeah, our family eats right and exercises. That’s why we’re healthy.
Joanna : Where’s your younger brother these days?
Sam : Well, John got admitted to the medical college in NY. He’s going to be a doctor.
Joanna : Really? You must be so proud of him.
Sam : Yeah, I am. My old man was a carpenter, and I got into the same profession, but little Johnny’s always studied hard. He’s going to bring credit to the family name.
Joanna : So happy for you Sam!
Joanna : Hey John, I met Samantha at the party last night. Is she your sister?
John : Samantha? No, she ain’t my sister. She’s Frank’s daughter. Frank is my brother. Samantha is my niece.
Joanna : Your niece? But she’s not very young!
John : Yeah! My dad married my mom when he was in his 40s. Frank was already 18 then. He’s my step brother actually.
Joanna : Wow! Families are weird, aren’t they? A woman older than you is your niece.
John : That’s how families are Joanna.
