A: Wow! Look at all these books! I bet I can find a book about anything here!
B: Shhh!! Please keep your voice down. There are people reading and studying here.
A: Ok, I'm sorry. Are you the librarian? Maybe you can help me, I am looking for a book.
B: Yes I am. You can check our online catalog to search the book you want based on the genre, title or if you know the author, I can point you towards the right direction.
A: I am looking for a book that has nursery rhymes.
B: That would be in our children's section. That book shelf there on the right.
A: Ok, I would like to check out these books.
B: Do you have a library card?
A: No. How do I get one?
B: I just need to see your drivers license or utility bill to prove that you a resident of this state.
A: Here you go.
B: So you are all set. You can have these books for two weeks. If you need to have them longer, you can bring them here to renew them. If you don't, you get charged ten cents a day for each book.
A: Ok, thanks!
A: OK, so are you ready to learn how to bake a cake?
B: Almost, let me just put my apron on.
A: OK, so the first thing we are going to do is pre-heat the oven, that way we have it at the desired temperature once we finish preparing everything. Set it to three hundred and seventy five degrees Fahrenheit.
B: Got it.
A: No we are gonna make the batter. Take some butter and sugar and mix it lightly until you have a nice consistency. Then add some vanilla extract and eggs and continue mixing.
B: Do I have to use a whisk or can I use the electric mixer?
A: Go ahead and use the mixer, but put it on medium speed. I'm gonna sift the flour and baking powder separately and then we can mix it with milk and the rest of the ingredients.
B: OK, so now we need a baking pan right?
A: Yeah, but grease and flour it first so the cake won't stick to it when it bakes.
B: Done. So how long do we bake it for?
A: We can leave it in there for about twenty five minutes. Then we let it cool for ten minutes before we remove the cake from the pan.
B: Wow! This was a lot easier than I thought!
A: It's almost midnight! We are about to start a brand new year!
B: I know it's so exciting! A new year is always like a clean slate.
A: Fresh start to accomplish any dreams, objectives and goals.
A: Do you have a New Year's resolution?
B: I was thinking about it, but I'm never able to keep my New Year's resolution. Last year for example I joined a gym and only went twice.
A: Yeah I know what you mean. That's why this year I am keeping things more simple. Maybe like getting together with friends I haven't seen in a long time, or doing some volunteering work.
B: That seems reasonable. We should get together and watch the ball drop in Times Square.
A: Sure, as long as you don't try to kiss me at midnight!
B: Well, we can't break tradition! It's bad luck!
