Unit 11: Telling the Time



A: What time is it, Sylvia?

B: Uh, it's seven-fifty.

A: Huh, my watch is slow. Maybe it's the battery.

B: Oh, that reminds me; I should tell you about the scatterbrained thing I did.

A: What was that?

B: Well, a few mornings ago, when I woke up, it was already seven-thirty. I thought I'd slept through the alarm.

A: Seven-thirty! That didn't give you much time, did it?

B: No, it didn't. I took a quick shower, jumped into my clothes, and ran all the way here.

A: Did you make it in time?

B: Yeah, I think I got here right at eight. But there was one problem.

A: What was that?

B: There were no other students; I was the only one here!

A: Oh, no! Let me guess--it was Saturday!

B: That's right. I need a clock that tells me what day it is.
