LESSON 47 DIALOGUE
Lesson 47 – Rock Climbing
Darren, Kieran and Rosie are spending the week rock climbing and potholing. They are sitting around a fire, talking about their adventures.
Darren: I’d really like to get further into that cave. The battery power on my torch is too low to risk going deeper. I’ll have to make sure it has enough power tomorrow.
Rosie: I still wouldn’t risk it Darren. It looked too narrow for you. You wouldn’t want to get stuck now, would you.
Darren: Are you saying I’m too fat?
Kieran: No, she’s saying that your skeleton is too small for your flesh.
Darren: Oi, you stay out of this Kieran!
Rosie: What I said was that it was too narrow. I don’t think I could even get through it and I’m small enough to be considered a hobbit.
Kieran: Do we have enough pegs for the climb tomorrow?
Rosie: I think so. I have a new pack of them. We need to check that they are strong enough before we attempt a big climb.
Darren: We may have to stick to the potholing for a couple of days. I looked at the weather report and it looks as if it is going to be too cold to go scaling up a mountain.
Kieran: I agree. I took a look at the weather forecast myself. I’ve brought enough clothes to keep warm but they say that there are going to be some strong winds.
Rosie: Potholing it is then! There are some caves that we haven’t visited yet. I didn’t consider them at first as they were too far away but if that is our only option then so shall it be.
Darren: I’m going to get an early night. I’m too tired to think straight now. I want to get enough sleep so that I’m fresh as a daisy tomorrow.
Rosie: Good idea! I want to get up a bit earlier so I have enough time to check those pegs before we head out.
Kieran: I’ll make sure that this fire is out properly before I go to bed. Goodnight guys.
