This is a ball. It is red. It is big and red. It has three stripes. There
is a picture on the ball. It is made from plactic. It is made by Spalding.
It is made in China. It reminds me of a ball I had when I was a kid.
I looks fun. I imagine children still like balls. We use it to play sports.
It is about the same size as a basketball. It is on the floor.
I have two dresses. They both are cute. They neither are cheap.
This one is blue but that one is red. I prefer the red one. It like it
better because it suits my eye color. The red dress was more expensive
than the blue dress. I would recommend the red dress for a date but
the blue dress for lunch with friends. This is the best dress I have.
The red dress is the most expensive dress I have ever bought.

I'd like to show you how to make instant curry. First you should
boil some water. Then put in the curry pack. It takes about 5 minutes
to heat. While the curry is cooking you can put some rice on a plate.
After 5 minutes take the package out of the water and open it. Be
careful because it is really hot. Open the pack and pour it next to the
rice. Finally get a spoon and you are ready to eat. (Also see How To...)
This is the plan. Tomorrow we will get up at 5AM. After we get ready
and eat breakfast we should leave the house by six. The we will pick up
Tom and Nancy and head to the beach. It takes abour 2 hours if traffic
is light. When we get to the beach let's relax until lunch time and then
eat at one of those little beachside cafes. If possible I want to do a
little shopping in the village. After that let's swim again at the beach.
We should probably leave before 4PM.
I don't think so. Are you sure? What are you talking about. C'mon.
Really? I don't believe that. You must be mistaken. Please look
closely. There's no way. Let's check. I'm sure I'm right. Let's ask
John. Who told you that? Whatever.
