Pauline: Hello Tracy.
Tracy: Hello Pauline. I came as soon as I could. What’s the hurry?
Pauline: Thank you. You see, I have to buy a new bed and since you’re a pretty good interior designer, I wanted to get your opinion.
Tracy: Okay but tell me, what do you have in mind?
Pauline: I want to know if I should get a high back bed or a low one.
Tracy: The back wall of your bedroom is plain, I think you should go for a high back bed.
Pauline: Won’t it look overdone?

Pauline: That’s right! Thank you for your help Tracy.
Tracy: Pleasure Pauline!
