– Sleeping in –


Lesson 49: Sleeping in

There is a knock on the door.

Kiera: Darren, are you still in bed?

Darren: No……Yes! What time is it?

Kiera: It’s 10:30. We have to be at the airport for 1 o’clock. I have already ordered the taxi.

Darren: Okay, I’ll get up in a minute. I have already packed so what’s the rush?

Kiera: Just get out of bed and stop being lazy!

Darren: Alright, alright! I’m getting up. I’m still sleepy… Do you still have some of that super strong coffee?

Kiera: Yes, there is some left. We will be able to buy some quality coffee in South America. Some real rocket fuel. Can I come in?

Darren: No, I’m getting dressed.

Kiera: Oh, I gave the spare keys to Rosie. I’m sure that she won’t need them. But just in case.

Darren: Uh huh!

Kiera: And I gave her a call an hour ago. She asked us to bring her a souvenir back, something that she can eat she said. Preferably something sweet. I think that she has forgotten all about her diet. And a thimble, she asked for a thimble. Who collects thimbles anymore?

Darren: Uh huh!

Kiera: Are you okay, Darren?

Darren: How about that coffee?

Kiera: I haven’t put the kettle on yet. I’ll do it now.

A few minutes later Kiera returns with a cup of coffee and knocks on the door. There is no answer.

Kiera: Darren….Darren…

Facts: Thimbles are simple, utilitarian objects worn to protect the finger-tip whilst sewing. The earliest thimble was Roman and found at Pompeii. It was made of bronze and dated to the first century AD.

Other adverbs

In the previous lesson, we analyzed the order of the elements of the sentence and the position that most adverbs usually occupy. In this lesson, however, we will focus on the specific meaning of the three adverbs that can sometimes cause confusion.
