Harry What do you think of this CD?
Dan I don’t really like it. I’m not into rap music.
Harry Me neither. Let’s listen to something else. What kind of thing do you like?
Dan I quite like heavy metal.
Harry Really? Me too! Why don’t we listen to Beastworld.
Dan I don’t know that band. What are they like?
Harry I think they’re great. They sound a bit like AC/DC, but they aren’t so commercial.
Dan OK. I’ll give it a try. Put it on!

Marcus: Marcus Wright.
Doctor: And what can I do for you, Marcus?
Marcus: Well, I’ve just felt really ill recently.
Doctor: Oh dear. What are the symptoms?
Marcus: I’ve had a blocked up nose.
Doctor: Yes, I can hear that. Sore throat too?
Marcus: No, not really. But I’ve had a few headaches.
Doctor: Really? How bad were they?
Marcus: Not very bad. Just . . . headaches.
Doctor: I see. Well, I think you’ve probably got a cold.
Marcus: Yes. I think so too.
Doctor: There’s nothing I can give you for that.
Marcus: Oh.
Doctor: So just drink plenty of water, and you’ll be fine in a week.
Marcus: Should I stay in bed?
Doctor: Oh, no! Definitely not! In fact, get some fresh air. It will help with the headaches. If it doesn’t, take painkillers.
Marcus: OK. Thanks
