Anne: Kids! It's time to pack up!
Amy: Mom, you've been saying that every morning this whole past week.
Alex: With all this packing and re-packing, we're going to wear out the luggage before we even get on the plane.
Anne: We have to get ready for the trip.
Alex: No offense, Mom, but I think we are ready, already.
Anne: But are you sure you have everything?
Amy: If I don't have it now, I don't care!
Anne: Do you have your swimming suits and towels?
Anne: Toothbrush, soap, comb, brush?
Anne: Three changes of clothes?
Anne: Underwear, too?
Amy: Mom! We went through this list yesterday and the day before and ...
Anne: We want to be sure we don't forget anything.
If you actually opened your suitcases and looked, you might decide you wanted a different shirt or skirt or something.
Alex: I think I'll risk it.
Amy: Me, too.
Anne: Open those suitcases or else!
Alex: Okay, okay.
My suitcase is open.
Everything is there.
See, the checklist is even there.
Anne: Look at these shorts.
Do they go well with that shirt?
And those socks?
Alex: I don't care.
Anne: What if you meet a good looking girl?
Alex: And you are the one who tells me that if a girl doesn't like me for who I am, she doesn't matter.
Anne: And look at your skirts and blouses, Amy.
That's three nice sets, but can you mix and match them?
Amy: Mom, we looked at the combinations yesterday and decided each one goes well enough with the others.
Anne: These socks do not go together well with those socks.
Amy: I'm not planning on wearing two pair of socks at any point on this trip.
Anne: Well, okay.
How are your summer studies coming?
Amy: I'm finished with everything but the report on the summer vacation.
Amy: Okay, I have a little bit of math and Japanese review left.
Anne: Is that all?
Amy: Well, maybe there's the science experiment, but I don't have time for that before the trip.
Anne: Is everything ready so you can do it when we get home?
Amy: Well, ....
Anne: Then maybe you should prepare for the trip by getting ready for the experiment.
How about you, Alex?
Alex: See, I have room in my carry-on bags for my science and Japanese homework.
And I have a notebook for my summer vacation report, too.
I'll finish the math today.
Anne: Can you help Amy get ready for her experiment?
Alex: That's the other thing I was planning to do today.
Anne: Okay, well, let's get ready by, uhm, getting ready!
