Invitation to a Dinner
MR. HUNTER: Good evening, Mr. Won Diem.
MR. WON DIEM: Good evening, Mr. Hunter. It's ages I heard from you.
MR. HUNTER: I've been away for a while. It was a business trip to Thailand.
MR. WON DIEM: I'm glad you phoned me.
MR. HUNTER: The days have been so crowded since my return that there have been few occasions to visit any of my friends.
MR. WON DIEM: I hope to see you some day.
MR. HUNTER: That is what I mean. Will it be possible for you and Mrs. Won Diem to have dinner with us at seven o'clock on Friday, the tenth?
MR. WON DIEM: Even if we had other plans for Friday, we should try to cancel them to have the pleasure to see both of you.
MR. HUNTER: So this coming Friday, at seven. We are expecting some other interesting people to come.
MR. WON DIEM: Thank you, Mr. Hunter.
MR. HUNTER: Goodbye, Mr. Won Diem.
MR. WON DIEM: Goodbye, Mr. Hunter. See you on Friday.
