Cindy and Pete are friends. They run into each other on the street.
Hi, Pete! I haven't seen you around lately. How have you been?
Actually, I was in the hospital last month.
Oh, dear! I'm sorry to hear that. Nothing serious, I hope.
It was more stupid than serious. I was playing Ultimate Frisbee and when I jumped to make a catch, I landed funny. I had to have surgery on my knee.
That sounds terrible. ( １ ) I would have visited you in the hospital.
( ２ ) Actually, they kept me pretty busy with rehab. So, I can't say it was fun but at least I wasn't spending a lot of time bored in my hospital bed.
When did you get out?
Two weeks ago. I'm walking around normally now, although the doctor warns me to wait a few more weeks before playing Frisbee again.
( ３ ) You definitely don't want to overdo it.
Enough about me! What have you been up to?
Well, I think the last time we spoke I told you I was applying for a film-making internship in Venice.
Yes, I remember. (イ)Did that work out
Well, no, but I got an offer for an internship here in town (ロ)that is right up my alley
So it turned out all for the best. ( ４ )
Next week we're going to be shooting some footage of a baseball game at the university. (Ａ)私はちょうどそこでの会合に行く途中だった
That's so cool! Maybe in the future you can make a documentary about Ultimate Frisbee and film me!
( ５ ) That would certainly be fun! Anyway, I've got to run. (ハ)Let's keep in touch
Sure thing, Cindy! Bye!
