Ryan: So, I hear you and your brother are going on a study abroad of Europe this summer. You dog.
Alex: Hey, why don’t you come along with us? It’s only for three weeks.
Ryan: Nah. I don’t wanna be a tag-along and in the way.
Alex: Nonsense. I know you’re feeling to get out and see things, and this is the cheapest tour around. [Oh, yeah.] Only $1.500! Hey, we’re planning on painting the town every night.
Ryan: No, really. I don’t wanna ask you to change your plans.
Alex: No problem. And on the tour, you can back and enjoy the sites without worrying about finding your way around. The study abroad tour arranges everything.
Ryan: I don’t know. It sound too good to be true.
Alex: Ah. Don’t let this opportunity through your fingers. And when we’re not in classes . . . I mean you have to go to classes, but anyway, we’ll be some great shopping districts, so you can keep your eye out for some real [uh-huh] . You could even pick up some nice gifts for your girlfriend if you wanna surprise her.
