A dialogue between two boys discussing the holidays plans



A: Hurrah! Only ten days to the holidays.

B: I know. I have been counting the days.

A: So am I. What are you going to do with these holidays?

B: I would like to go to the hills for a change. But that means I need lot of money, and I don't think my father will give it to me. What are you going to do?

A: Oh, I shall go home. My home is in the hilly part, where it is fairly cool in the summer; and I think I shall find plenty of work to do there.

B: You are lucky. My home is in the plains and it is very hot, and I soon get tired of the small village life.

A: Well, look here! Why not come to my home and stay with me for a few weeks?

B: That would be fine. But I don't suppose your father would want me there. I should only be in the way.

A: Not at all! Father told me last year, when I was at home, that I should bring one of my school-fellow with me, and have a good time. So come along!

B: I should love it! It's very kind of you.

A: Splendid! We can have some good time together.

B: So we shall. Thank terribly.


A: Oh! You need not thank me; because I shall myself have a much jollier time with you there than if I were alone.
