Jeff: Hi, Maggie! Are you heading for the canteen? So early?
Maggie: Oh, yes, Jeff, I could eat a horse! I skipped breakfast today and now I’m regretting it.
Jeff: I’m going there too. But I never have breakfast at home.
Maggie: Why not?
Jeff: I just have no time for it. I sleep till the last possible moment.
Maggie: And I didn’t eat because I decided to try a new diet. That was a stupid thing to do!
Jeff: Ha-ha, it certainly is stupid! You’re the captain of the school athletics team! You spend hours at the stadium! I do cycling and know that sport burns lots of calories.
Maggie: It’s true. It was Linda who talked me into trying the diet.
Jeff: But Linda has never done any sport! I’ve seen her at the swimming pool once, and she was sitting on the bench with a sandwich in her hand.
Maggie: Careful. She’s my friend.
Jeff: Sorry. I didn’t mean any offence. Look at that food! Those buns look yummy! What would you like to eat to compensate for skipping breakfast?
Maggie: Pizza. No, they only serve vegetarian pizza today. I’ll have fish and chips. I haven’t eaten it for ages!
Jeff: And it looks like a huge portion. I’ll have fish and chips too.
Maggie: Fine. Let’s take the food to that table, by the window, ok?
Jeff: Yes sure. Sit down. … Oh, the chips are delicious.
Maggie: It’s a simple dish, but I can never cook it the same way they do it in the canteen.
Jeff: They probably know the secret.
Maggie: Yes, maybe. We don’t often cook anything special at home. Mum prefers frozen food. It saves time.
Jeff: Right, but homemade food is better. I actually like homemade things of all kinds and prefer them to manufactured goods.
Maggie: Oh, yes! I adore homemade presents. I always make something special for my family, like homemade birthday cards, little pictures, accessories. It’s a pity I can’t knit or sew. Otherwise I would try to make clothes myself.
Jeff: Like a designer?
Maggie: Kind of. I actually dream of being a designer in the future, not of clothes but an interior designer.
Jeff: A person who advises about the colours of the walls and what pieces of furniture to buy?
Maggie: Sort of. You’re not taking it seriously, but even doctors say that people’s health and happiness depends on how their home looks. Harmony in your home makes you live longer.
Jeff: Probably. I just thought you wanted to be an athletics coach.
Maggie: No, I’ve never thought about it as a career. Oh, what time is it? I need to hurry up or I’ll be late for my Literature class.
Jeff: Is it your last lesson for today?
Maggie: Oh, no. After Literature I have Maths and then Science. Why do you ask?
Jeff: I need to discuss one thing with you. It’s about my younger sister.
Maggie: Does she want to join our team?
Jeff: Yes. But I’m not sure she should do it. Could we talk about it after your classes?
