Todd: So, Meg, are you busy? Do you have a busy week?
Meg: Yes. I usually have a busy week.
Todd: Yeah, me too. So what day is your busiest day?
Meg: My busiest day is Thursday.
Meg: On Thursday, I have to work from early in the morning until around 6:00 p.m. I have to teach classes. And then after that, I need to do my shopping at the supermarket.
Todd: Okay. I do my shopping on Saturday.
Meg: Oh, really?
Todd: Yeah, always on Saturday.
Meg: What else do you do on Saturday?
Todd: On Saturday, I do all my boring activities.
Meg: Like what?
Todd: I do my shopping. I do my laundry. I run errands. I clean my apartment. I do boring stuff because on Sunday, I like to have fun.
Meg: What do you like to do on Sunday?
Todd: On Sunday, I often go hiking or I go to the park or I go to the beach. I go to the beach almost every Sunday.
Meg: Wow, that sounds really fun.
Todd: Yeah, the beach is beautiful. Nobody is there. It's really nice.
Meg: Yeah, it sounds great.
Todd: How about you? What do you do on Sunday?
Meg: On Sunday, I always go to church in the morning, and sometimes I'll have lunch with friends after church.
Todd: Oh, cool.
Meg: And then, I usually clean as well, Sunday evening before the new week starts.
Todd: Now, do you work Monday through Friday?
Meg: Yes, I work every weekday. What about you?
Todd: I work Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday. I don't work Wednesday.
Meg: Oh, what's your schedule like on Wednesdays?
Todd: On Wednesdays, I usually stay at home and I relax. Sometimes, I go shopping. Sometimes, I go to the park. Sometimes, I prepare lessons because I'm a teacher.
Meg: So, sometimes you do a little work on Wednesdays?
Todd: Yes, but I do work at my house.
Meg: Oh, right.
Todd: I never go to school on Wednesday.
Meg: Why not?
Todd: Because it's a day off. So, how about Monday? Are you busy on Monday?
Meg: I'm usually busy on Monday because my schedule is similar to Thursday, so I have to teach class until around 6:00 p.m.
Todd: Yeah, Mondays are busy for me too. Mondays are busy. Thursdays also are busy. Tuesday and Friday are not so busy.
Meg: Your schedule sounds a little similar to mine.
Todd: Yeah. Well, we're both teachers.
Meg: That's true.
Todd: What about activities? Do you do any activities during the week?
Meg: During the week, if I have free time, sometimes I will watch a TV show or a movie and I also go to Japanese language class.
Todd: Oh, nice.
Meg: Yeah, so sometimes I have homework so I have to do my Japanese language homeworks some nights. What about you?
Todd: I play futsal on Tuesday nights. Every Tuesday, I play futsal with my friends for two hours and that's fun. And then, sometimes on Friday, I meet my friends for dinner.
Meg: That sounds good.
Todd: And I also like sports so I usually watch sports on TV on Monday.
Meg: What sports do you usually watch on Monday?
Todd: I watch everything. I watch baseball. I watch basketball. I watch American football and I watch soccer. So I come home and I watch a video of a game from Saturday or Sunday. I don't watch sports on Saturday or Sunday. I watch the video later on Monday night.
Meg: Is it better that way?
Todd: Yeah. Usually, I don't check the internet, so I don't know the score.
Meg: Well, it sounds like you have a busy schedule.
Todd: You too.
