Making a restaurant reservation over the phone
CC: Hi, I'd like to make a reservation?
Maitre'd: For how many?
Maitre'd: All right, for when?
CC: Seven o'clock Saturday night.
Maitre'd: I'm sorry, we don't make reservations for Saturday night.
Maitre'd: But I'm sure we will be able to seat your party when you arrive.
CC: Umm... I'm a little concerned. Since my party is so large, could you possibly set aside some tables for us so when we arrive at seven we won't have to wait?
Maitre'd: Certainly. I can do that.
At the church bazaar.
Guy: What's this?
Me: It's a footbath. You put warm water in it and some epsom salts and then you plug it in and it makes bubbles and stuff. You put your feet in it and it's really comforatable. I gave my dad one two Christmases ago.
Guy: Would your Dad like another one?
Me: I don't think that's necessary. After all, he only has two feet.
