M: I had a very strange dream last night. I dreamt I won a competition.
W: Oh, really? What did you win? Money? A new car?
M: I won a holiday on a desert island. I hope it will come true.
M: We are having a little party at the weekend. Can you and Tom come?
W: That sounds nice. Thank you. But I’ll have to check with Tom.
M: So, Jane, how long have you been an author?
W: Well, Tom, I didn’t start writing until I was in my thirtieth, and I’m over seventy now. So goodness, I must have been writing for about forty years.
W: Excuse me, do you have any batteries? I need some to my radio.
M: Sure. They are over there, next to the pens.
W: Do you think you can give me a lift to the station?
M: I’m terribly sorry, I can’t. I have to be at work by 8:30. I can call you a taxi, though.
M: How can I help you, Ms. Johnson?
W: Mmm…. First, I’d like to order thirty coats, order number P25J5.
M: OK, order number P25J5, coats, thirty.
W: Unhen, how much are they?
M: Forty-five dollars each.
W: OK. And gloves, order number P28D5. How much are they?
M: Five dollars a pair. How many do you need?
M: Gloves, fifty pairs, five dollars a pair, P28D5. OK.
W: And shoes. Mmm…. Twenty-five pairs of order number P26T5.
M: Shoes, order number P26T5, twenty-five pairs at eighteen dollars a pair. Is that OK?
W: Yes, that’s fine.
M: Hi, Mary, you’re back! How was New York?
W: Great! Have you ever been there?
W: I think it’s probably my favorite city.
M: Really? What’s so great about it? I heard it was quite dirty.
W: In some parts, maybe. But there’s just so much going on, the theaters, restaurants, shops and museums. They make London and Paris like country towns. The only problem was the weather. It was freezing.
M: What a shame!
M: And onto this morning’s local traffic news. Driving conditions have been improved. Now the early morning fog has gone. Rain is forecast for tonight, but it would be fine during the day. Traffic police have warned drivers to expect delays coming into town in the afternoon because of repairs to Victoria Bridge. And lorries have been advised to go another way if possible.
W: My husband and I have decided to buy a new house, and I made an appointment to see a bank manager. I’ve never met him before, and was a little nervous. I drove into town and was lucky enough to find a parking space outside the bank. I just started backing into the space when another car drove into it. I was very angry. I opened my window and shouted at the other driver. He ignored me and walked away. It took me twenty minutes to find another place. As soon as I parked the car, I rushed into the bank. I was ten minutes late for my appointment. I went to the manager’s office, knocked and walked in. The manager was sitting behind his desk. He was the man who had taken my parking space.

W: Dad, it’s me, Kirsty.
M: Kirsty! How are you?
W: I’m fine but still a little tired.
M: I can imagine. What’s work like?
W: It’s still too early to say. But I think it’s going to be really good. It’s a big company but everybody’s been so kind and helpful.
M: And how about the city? Have you seen much of it yet?
W: I’ve seen a bit. It just seems such a big, busy city. I don’t see how I’ll ever find my way around.
M: I know. Big cities can seem really strange and frightening at first. Where are you living?
W: Well, I find a tiny apartment. But it’s in the downtown area and it’s close to work.
M: It all sounds really interesting. Hope you’ll enjoy yourself there.
M: Dr. Stone, how did you become an expert on smell?
W: Well, I didn’t intend to in the first place. But when I was in university, there was a course on senses. The other senses seem to be more concrete somehow, but smell is so personal. I found it extremely interesting.
M: Do you have any interesting information to give us about smells?
W: Well, let’s see. Did you know that it’s harder to forget smells than to forget facts? There have been experiments where people could pick out a particular smell thirty days after smelling it for the first time.
M: Really? So smells can bring back more memories than, say, music?
W: That seems to be the case.
M: That’s interesting. So what’s your favorite smell?
W: Oh, I have lots of different ones. The smells of the sea reminds me of happy family holidays, and the smell of roses makes me think of my friend’s house. Strangely enough, I like the smell of air craft fuel at airports. Then I know I am going to fly somewhere exciting. But it’s the general smell of my garden in the rain that I really like the most. That means I am at home where I should be.
