 Thomas

 So, tell me some more about yourself? How many brothers and sisters do you have?

 Sue

 I have five brothers and three sisters.

 Thomas

 Wow, that sure is a big family. Are you the eldest?

 Sue

 No, my brother Sam is. He is a lawyer at the biggest law firm in town.

 Thomas

 So, are you the most beautiful sister?

 Sue

 No. Everyone says Sara is the most beautiful. She came in second in the Miss California beauty pageant last year. Everyone just thinks I'm the cutest.

 Thomas

 You said you were getting your master's in Economics at UCLA, so you must be the smartest, right?

 Sue

 Actually, the smartest would be my brother, Stan. He just got his doctorate in Aerospace Engineering from USC.

 Thomas

 So, how often do you see everyone? It must be hard to get everyone together.

 Sue

 We usually have dinner at my parent's house once a month; everyone except my brother, Steve. He's in Africa studying zebra migration for his master's thesis. He was always the most adventurous.

 Thomas

 So, who's the youngest?

 Sue

 My brother, Scott, is the youngest. He's a senior in high school.

 Thomas

 So, does he want to go to UCLA like his older sister?

 Sue

 No, actually he's the most athletic one in our family. He just signed a contract with a minor league team. Someday, he hopes to play shortstop for the Dodgers.

 Thomas

 Wow, you sure have an interesting family. I'd sure like to meet them.

 Sue

 Well, we are all having dinner together next Saturday. My mom makes the best Italian food.

 Thomas

 Sounds good. I'll bring a bottle of wine and put on my best suit.

 Sue

 Great! Now, tell me a little more about you. How many brothers and sisters do you have?
