Invitation to a House-warming Party
NICK: Hello, Lizzy.
LIZZY: Hello, Nick.
NICK: How are you? How's George?
LIZZY: I'm well, but George was on sick-leave for over a week.
NICK: Really? What was the trouble?
LIZZY: He hurt his leg when getting off the bus.
NICK: I hope nothing serious. Is he on his feet now?
LIZZY: Yes, he is alive and kicking.
NICK: Net and I are giving a party next Sunday. We hope you and George will come.
LIZZY: What is the occasion, Nick?
NICK: We've got a new apartment.
LIZZY: So it is a house-warming party. I'm glad you are moving to a new flat. The one you've got now was too small. Of course, George and I will come.
NICK: Next Sunday, at 6 p.m. Put down the address, please. Tverskoy Boulevard, 10, apt. 23.
LIZZY: I've got it, thank you. Best regards to Net.
LIZZY: Goodbye, Nick.
