- Todd(Me): Hi—you must be John’s cousin Matt, right? From San Diego?
- Matt(Nourdine): Correct! I just got in last night.
- Todd(Me): I’m Todd, John’s roommate from Tech. Glad to meet you. I can assure you that I’m not anything like what John has told you.
- Matt(Nourdine): I’m happy to meet you, too—and, yes—I have heard about you! Football player and party animal extraordinaire.
- Todd(Me): Football, yes—and as a matter of fact, I do like parties. But tell me more about yourself and what you do in San Diego.
- Matt(Nourdine): Well, I’m more (of) a surfer than a football player. You know, San Diego has a fantastic coast—and we can surf all day and then party on the beach at night.
- Todd(Me): That sounds awesome. How long are you staying?
- Matt(Nourdine): Well, I’ll be here for two weeks. John has promised me a nonstop schedule— kind of a m ix of sightseeing, meeting his friends, checking out the local scene, and—hopefully—camping in the mountains for a couple o f days.
- Todd(Me): John’s a good guy—and you can be sure he knows the local scene. He knows everybody in town. I’m sure he’ll show you a good time. And his friends are here to help.
- Matt(Nourdine): Thanks so much—I really appreciate that. I’m still a bit jet-lagged at the moment but should be in good shape by tomorrow. I’m looking forward to hearing what John has in store for me…
- Todd(Me): Don’t worry. We’ll all take good care of you. And don’t be surprised if we show up on your doorstep in San Diego one day, ready for surfing
