Is there a flower shop around here?


▶ Dialogue


 Scott 

Excuse me. Is there a flower shop around here?

 Tiffany 

Yes, there's one just around the corner.

 Scott 

I'm new to the area. Could you be more specific?

 Tiffany 

Sure, walk straight and turn left at the first corner. You'll see a big grocery store. The flower shop is right next to the grocery store. You can't miss it.

 Scott 

Oh, thanks. And one more question. Is there also a jewelry store nearby? 

 Tiffany 

The jewelry store is a couple of blocks away from the flower shop. 

 Scott 

Could you tell me how to get there? 

 Tiffany 

 Hmm... it's hard to explain it from here. Why don't you ask someone near the flower shop? It's a lot easier to get there from the flower shop.

 Scott 

 Oh, that's a good idea. Thanks for your help.

 Tiffany 

You're welcome. Have a nice day.
