B：Hey, Jim. I didn’t know you biked to work.
A：Yeah, it helps keep me fit and helps the environment, too.
B：One less car on theroad means less pollution.
A：Right. Since my work is near a park, it’s a really nice ride, too.
B：How far is it?
A：Oh, about 10 miles. It takes me about an hour.
B：That doesn’t sound too bad. I wish I could do it, but I work in the city. So I take the train.
A：You’re doing your part for the environment by using public transportation, too.
B：True. Well, see you tomorrow.
A：Bob, do you want to go grocery shopping with me?
B：Where are you going—to the corner shop down theroad or to the new supermarket downtown?
A：I thought we could go to the new supermarket to check it out. Maybe they’ll have some of those olives that you like so much.
B：Alright. Have you made your shopping list?
A：No, I thought we’d just have a look.
B：You know what they say. You should never go grocery shopping when you are hungry.
B：Because you’ll end up buying a lot more food than you normally would. Maybe we should at least give ourselves a budget to work with.
A：Fine. We won’t spend any more than $50.
B：Ok. Let’s go!
A：As you know, the FastTrek 2000 is due for release next month. I think we've finally worked the kinks out.
正如你所知，FastTrek 2000 预定在下个月推出。我想我们已经解决了所有琐碎的问题。
B：Great. That's vital. Quality is the focus of the ad campaign. The boards must work well if they're going to be the cash cow we want them to be.
A：Let's go over our promotion plans again.
B：OK. We have six major retailers running demonstrations at most branches. And our exhibition team is already on theroad setting up for computer shows.
A：Good. What about print and radio?
B：We've taken out full-page ads for two large trade magazines. And more important, our press releases have been well received.
A：Any larger ads?
B：Yes. We're putting the same full-page ad in the Sunday edition of three major newspapers.
B：But nothing ever works out as you want it. So I have a number of other tricks up my sleeve, as well.
