did you eat or drink anything unusual

last night

well it was my birthday so I ate a lot

of cake and other stuff

that's probably the reason overeating

usually causes those symptoms but it's

never made me feel this bad before

I understand it's just a sign that

you're getting older

short conversations

you will hear two dialogues listen

carefully dialogue one

honey how did the appointment with the

doctor go okay I guess

did he find out anything besides her

sore throat

yeah he told me that my glands were

swollen

did you tell him that you had a hard

time swallowing yes he did a test to

find out whether or not it's a viral

infection

does that mean you need to see him again

uh-huh I'll have to go back on Wednesday

dialogue - this is such a long flight

I'm really starting to feel

uncomfortable

have you had a chance to stand up and

walk around

no it's not easy to get up when you're

in the middle seat

that's true but you should get up anyway

stretching your legs will help a lot

you're probably right

even a little movement would help

it'll definitely help the circulation in

your legs

okay I'll go walk for a little while I

just hope we land soon
