 Hey, Terrance. Did you read in the paper today that the government is increasing the price of cigarettes by 25%?

 Terrance 

 Oh, yeah? Well, I think that's a good thing.

 Gary 

 What? Are you joking? The price of cigarettes is already too high. And now they want to raise it more? How can that be a goo thing?

 Terrance 

 Well, it will probably help reduce the amount of lung cancer.

 Gary 

 That may be, but it's my choice if I want to smoke or not. So, if I get lung cancer, it's my own fault. Besides, you smoke. Doesn't it make you angry now that you have to pay more?

 Terrance 

 No, not really. I plan on quitting and it seems to me that now's as good a time as any.

 Gary 

 Well, did you also hear that the government is going to increase the tax on beer by 25%?

 Terrance 

 Now, that's something to get angry about! We'd better stop by the beer store and stock up before the price goes up!

I think Korea will do well in the next World Cup.

I'd say, as far as coffee goes, this one is disgusting.

I really think that people should not blow their nose at the food table.


I think having a dog is better because they are friendly / loyal.

Yes, but I think having a cat is better because they are clean and they can use a toilet.


It is funner to cheer with a crowd.

We can travel in Korea anytime, but we can't go abroad anytime.


If you had an opportunity to go abroad, where would you go?
