When do you eat dinner?
John: Do you always have dinner at a different time, too?
Sarah: No. I almost always eat dinner around 6 o'clock. How about you? When do you eat dinner?
John: My dinner time varies a lot just like my breakfast. So maybe I eat dinner later than most people. I think I would have dinner at 7:00 PM at the earliest. But sometimes, I will have dinner as late as 9 o'clock at night.
John: Yeah. I don't mind it. I really like cooking so, if I'm cooking a short thing, I'll have dinner earlier. But I don't mind if it takes two hours to cook something really good, I'll eat later at night.
Sarah: Wow. Can you tell me about your work routine? What time do you usually go to work?
John: See, my work schedule is different everyday. That's why I wake up at a different time everyday. Maybe on – for example, some weeks on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, I start work at 7:00. But on Thursday and Friday, I don't start work until 11:30.
John: How about you? Do you have a different work time sometimes?
Sarah: Well, right now, I'm on maternity leave. So I stay home and take care of my new baby.
John: Oh, congratulations.
Sarah: Thank you. I try to work at home a little bit everyday though. If the kids are sleeping or they're playing quietly, I try to do some work. Maybe around 2 o'clock, I can usually get some work done because the kids are sleeping.
John: Oh, if you don't start getting some work done until 2 o'clock in the afternoon, you must be very busy every morning.
Sarah: Yeah. I usually go to the grocery store. Sometimes I take the kids to the park around 10:00 in the morning. I often do the laundry or wash the dishes, and then as soon as the dishes are washed, it's time to make lunch. So I'm busy all day.
John: I see. So that's why your lunch time can change so much.
John: Oh, it sounds like a busy day.
