Lesson 18 -- Everyone Bakes Cookies
Speak English Like an American -- Lesson 18
Bob tells his family the cookies are selling well. He asks his kids to help bake more cookies for tomorrow. Nicole says she's too busy to lend a hand.
Bob: The cookies are selling like hotcakes.
Ted: Way to go, Dad!
Bob: I need you kids to help out tonight with the cookies. We need another thousand by morning.
Nicole: One thousand by tomorrow morning? That's impossible!
Ted: Amber and I will lend a hand. She's a real night owl, so she won't mind staying up late.
Bob: Nicole, we'll need your help too.
Nicole: Bake cookies the night before the elections? Nothing doing!
Ted: Lighten up, big shot! You are running for high school president, not president of the United States.
Nicole: Ted, you really get on my nerves sometimes.
Bob: Okay, kids, let's stop fooling around. We need to get the show on the road.
