A: Thank you for coming tonight, Mrs. Webber. As a teacher, it's great seeing the kid's parents assist our parent-teacher conference night.
B: Of course! I am very interested to know how my child is doing and also get some insight from you as to how he can improve.
A: Well Allen is a great student. He is a hard worker and very well behaved, however he does struggle a bit with math.
B: I guess he gets that from me, I never did well in math when I was a kid. What can I do at home to compliment what he is learning in the classroom.
A: Well, it's important that you sit with him and review his homework assignments and help him with math. I would also recommend he stay after school twice a week for tutoring sessions. It will really help a lot.
B: Thanks a lot! I will definitely do that. Is there anything else?
A: Um... yes. Here is a notice from our financial department, seems your child's tution is overdue.
B: Oh yes, I...
A: What's for dinner?
A: What? Leftovers of what and from when?
B: From last night! I took the left over turkey, mixed it with some diced peppers and onions, added a little bit of mayonnaise and made some sandwiches!
A: Isn't that dangerous though? I mean bacteria and germs reproducing on food that was left out or re-heated?
B: Well, I didn't leave the turkey out at room temperature for more than a an hour and I refrigerated it soon after we finished eating. Also, when reheating, I put it in the oven for fifteen minutes at one hundred degrees Celsius.
A: Well OK, I am just afraid of getting food poisoning.
B: Don't worry about it! Making a new meal out of leftovers is almost an art! Not only do you save money, but you also get to be creative and have something different to eat!
A: What are you doing, awake?
B: I can't sleep...
A: But it's almost midnight!
B: Exactly. I'm too excited for Christmas morning. Also, I thought I heard Santa.
A: Really? How do you know it was Santa?
B: Well, I heard that naughty boys and girls get coal in their stockings, so I thought I'd be nice and make Santa cookies. I even left out some milk. I heard someone in the kitchen eating the cookies, so I came downstairs!
A: Hmm... well I know that Santa won't come down the chimney with you hiding behind the tree, spying on him!
A: Really! Let's go back upstairs and get back to bed. That way, we can let Santa do his job. Then when you wake up, it will be Christmas already!
A: Hey, honey! Is that you? Don't eat all the cookies—I want some, too!
