7. Rejecting an Invitation


A: Joe, how are you doing?

B: I am great! How about you, Mary? How are you?

A: I am doing great! Thank you for asking, Joe.

B: I was wondering if you want to go see a movie with me tonight?

A: I need to stay home tonight and finish my term paper.

B: OK. What about going to the movies on Friday night?

A: What were you planning on seeing?

B: I was thinking about seeing that one about the rapist serial killer.

A: How about "The Secret Life of Bees"?

B: That's a chick flick!


A: Hi Joe, how are you doing today?

B: Things are going good today. How have you been doing, Mary?

A: Things are going well for me, Joe.

B: Want to go see a movie tonight?

A: My parents are taking me to dinner tonight.

B: Could you go with me to the movies on Friday night, instead?

A: What movie did you want to see?

B: There is a new horror flick about a rapist serial killer.

A: I was thinking that I would like to see "The Secret Life of Bees."

B: Oh great! Sounds like something I need to bring Kleenex to!


A: Hey Joe, how have you been?

B: I am doing well. How about you, Mary?

A: I am doing OK, Joe.

B: There is a new movie at the mall that I want to see. Want to go with me?

A: I can't because I already promised my roommate that I would go shopping with her.

B: I could go to the movies on Friday night instead. Would that be better?

A: Did you have a certain movie in mind?

B: I thought the movie about a serial killer who rapes and mutilates his victims would be a good choice.

A: I kind of wanted to see "The Secret Life of Bees."

B: Maybe we can think of something somewhere between a chick flick and a horror movie!
