LISA: Hi Tony, thanks ever so much for coming. You know we’ve been asked to organise something for John’s farewell?
TONY: Yeah, sure, it’s about time we started working out details.
LISA: Exactly. We don’t want to leave it so late that it’s double the work.
TONY: Mmm, mm, right, do you want me to take notes?
LISA: That’d be great, thanks.
TONY: Right, first thing is, when is the best time to hold it?
LISA: Well, he leaves on the twenty-fourth of December.
TONY: So what about the twenty-second? Example
LISA: Yeah, I think that’s about right. We want it quite near the time, don’t we?
TONY: Sure, and what about a venue? In college? A hotel?
LISA: I think a hotel will probably work out rather expensive, and I’ve been looking at the College Dining Room; that seems pretty reasonable. Q1
TONY: Fine, yeah, why not?
LISA: And then we ought to be thinking about invitations... Who mustn’t we forget to invite?
TONY: Well, obviously John and his wife.
TONY: And the Director.
LISA: Ah ha.
TONY: The office staff. Q2
LISA: Yep, and all the teachers and all the students. Q3
TONY: Anyone else?
LISA: Faculty Heads?
TONY: No, better draw the line, I don’t think it’s necessary.
LISA: Yeah, you’re right.
TONY: I don’t mind writing the invitations. When shall we get them out for?
LISA: Enough time but not too early. What about the fifteenth of December?
TONY: Well, there are exams on the sixteenth - better avoid them.
LISA: Tenth? Q4
TONY: Yeah, that should do it.
