Prakash:We are planning to throw a small party on Saturday evening. It is for our friends who are shifting to Australia next month. Do you think you and your wife can make it?
Dileep:We would like to come but I am afraid my wife has an appointment with the dentist that day.
Prakash:Any time between 6 and 8 is alright. I think evening parties work out for working people well. You need not show up on time.
Dileep:I quite agree. Still, I don’t think we will be able to make it between 6 and 8.
Prakash:But, I will not take ‘no’ for an answer
Dileep:Good. I think I’ll talk to her. Do we dress?
Prakash:No, just wear the way you like. Also, tell your wife, we shall serve her special snacks so that she won’t have trouble with her teeth.
Dileep:I am sure, she won’t be able to say no to that. I think we will be a bit late then…
Prakash:Come any time you like…
Dileep:Thanks you.
Prakash:Until next week… goodbye
Dileep:Goodbye and take care…
