James: Hello, are you Muriel Douglas?
Muriel: Yes, and you must be James. It's nice to meet you at long last.
James: Yes, you too. Thanks for agreeing to meet with us about the new account. My associate, Susan Kim, should be here any minute. Would you like something to drink while we're waiting?
Muriel: No, thanks. I'm fine. Did you have a nice holiday?
James: Yes, I did. My family and I went to Tahoe to ski and the weather was great. How about you?
Muriel: I stayed in L.A. and it was sunny the entire weekend. We spent most of the time at home but we did go see King Kong on Christmas day.
James: How did you like it?
Muriel: It was better than I expected. But, you know, I think I would have enjoyed skiing in Tahoe even better. Do you go there often?
James: No, not much. My wife doesn't like to ski. She prefers vacationing where it's warmer, like Hawaii.
Muriel: I don't blame her. I really enjoyed it there when we went a few years ago. I'd like to go back sometime soon.
James: Yes, me too. Oh, here's Susan now. Let me introduce you.
