Try to retell this story.
Start like this: This story is about...
Listen to the dialogue and do the task.
Ed. Hey Rocky! You’ve been sitting around all night. Get out and dance with someone like that woman over there.
Rocky. No way! She looks like the intellectual type.
Ed. Oh come on man! What kind of woman do you like?
Rocky. I want a woman who’s affectionate and fulfills my every need, and that woman over there is just not the right type.
Ed. Hey. Where have you been? Times are changing, and you’re never going to find a woman who will shine your shoes and pick up after you all the time. Wake up.
Rocky. Oh really? I meet a lot of women like that, but not at this party. I also prefer a woman who’ll stay home, cook, clean, and watch the kids.
Ed. Okay, but what are your household responsibilities once you get home from work?
Rocky. Hmm. Eat, watch TV, and throw out the garbage.
Ed. Wait, wait, wait. I can’t believe I’m hearing this. In fact, you’re never going to get married. I recently read a news report that said 40 percent of women don’t think their husbands do their share around the house, and you seem to be that type.
Rocky. Well, that’s the way I am, but what’s YOUR idea of the perfect woman?
Ed. Well, I like a woman who’s outgoing, caring, and non-judgmental about people’s differences, and it bothers me when people think them the center of the universe ... like someone I know.
Rocky. Well, that’s nice for you, but that doesn’t change my point of view. I guess I’ll have to go home to a TV dinner and my dog, Rusty.
Ed. Hey, and if I stick with you, this is going to be a long, lonely night. Say hello to Rusty for me.
