|Jim:||I've worked so hard today, Betty!|
|Betty:||So have I, Jim! I haven't even read this morning's paper.|
|Jim:||Neither have I! Where is it?|
|Betty:||Oh, I think it's on top of refrigerator in the kitchen. Would you mind getting it, Jim? I'm too tired to move.|
|Jim:||I don't really want to read it.|
|Betty:||Well, neither do I. You know, my back is quite sore.|
|Jim:||So is mine. I planted a lot of young plants this afternoon.|
|Betty:||I didn't stop working all the afternoon.|
|Jim:||Neither did I. And by three o'clock my back was aching!|
|Betty:||So was mine. I wasn't able to stand up straight for quite a while afterwards.|
|Jim:||Neither was I. My whole body feels sore.|
|Betty:||So does mine. I shan't plant any more young plants for a while.|
|Jim:||Neither shall I. I'd like to rest for hours now.|
|Betty:||Jim, you shouldn't work so hard in the garden in future.|
|Jim:||Neither should you. But we both like to have flowers in the house. At any rate, I like to see flowers in the house.|
|Betty:||Oh, so do I, Jim. But we can't afford to buy flowers all the time. ... Oh, well, perhaps we'll feel better tomorrow.|
|Jim:||Perhaps! What are we going to do tomorrow, Betty?|
|Betty:||If it's fine, I wouldn't mind going for a drive in the car.|
|Jim:||Neither would I. Let's ask Hadi and Yati to go for a drive with us. Hadi likes going for a drive.|
|Betty:||So does Yati. She'll enjoy a drive in the country.|
|Jim:||They're both fond of the country.|
|Betty:||We can take a picnic lunch, and perhaps we could go to National Park. I'd like that.|
|Jim:||So would I. Hadi has been there, hasn't he?|
|Betty:||Yes, and so has Yati. But I don't mind how often I go there.|
|Jim:||Neither do I. It's a very pleasant place, with all those lovely trees.|
|Betty:||Oh, I'm looking forward to it! My back feels better already.|
|Jim:||So does mine. I'll go and phone Hadi immediately.|
|Betty:||And when you've phoned Hadi, I'll phone Yati. Tell Hadi we'll call for him at half past nine tomorrow morning.|
|Jim:||All right, Betty.|
|Betty:||I'll get the newspaper. I'll need it while you're talking to Hadi.|
