A: Holly, is it possible to borrow your notes? I'll return them tomorrow.

B: Sorry, but I usually go to the cafeteria and review them. Say, how about copying them over in the library?

A: Okay, I think I've got enough coins for the machines. You're a lifesaver, Holly!

B: No problem. But I don't understand why you need my notes, Carter; you haven't missed any classes.

A: Weekday mornings, I'm a cashier at a coffee shop downtown. After work, I come directly to school, and, boy, am I beat!

B: Wow, you're probably exhausted!

A: That's exactly why I want to borrow your notes; I've been nodding off during class, so my notes aren't very good.

B: Well, here's Professor Labelle; how you feeling?

A: I'm usually awake at the beginning. But thirty minutes into class and I'm having trouble keeping my eyes open.

B: Listen, I need someone to study with, and you need someone to keep you awake; want to be study partners?

A: Yeah, I'd sure appreciate it.

B: Okay; let's start today at the library. We're going there anyway, and I don't have to go to the cafeteria.

A: Sounds good. Oh, no, it looks like he's brought along some more of his slides; elbow me if I start drifting off.

B: I'm afraid I won't be very helpful; his slides make me sleepy too!
