Trying to Locate Someone
Carmen: Hi, I’m looking for Waldo. I was told that he comes in here from time to time. Have you seen him?
Antonio: Waldo? I haven’t seen him in a while. He comes in sometimes, but it’s pretty hit-and-miss.
Carmen: I can’t seem to pin him down. Every time I think I’m hot on his trail, I’m too late. He’s skipped town or has gone underground.
Antonio: That’s Waldo. He’s the most elusive person I know. I think he actually enjoys playing a game of cat and mouse with people who are trying to locate him.
Carmen: I’m starting to get that feeling. I’ve been trying to track him down for over two months.
Antonio: He does seem to have a sixth sense and knows when to vanish.
Carmen: I’m starting to think he doesn’t really exist and that he’s just a figment of my imagination.
Antonio: It’s funny you should say that. I think his ultimate goal is to be invisible, just another face in the crowd.
