# buying gifts together
--Hey Angela, are you done shopping for gifts?
--No, Teresa. I was so busy last week. I had tons of work to do. I haven't done any shopping yet and Christmas is just around the corner.
--Why don't you join me? I need to go shopping too. I used to go to Hamleys for toys, but the kids are all grown up now so I need to find another shop.
--Yeah, your kids and mine are about the same age. We can find the gifts together.
--Oh yeah, that would be great. We can also shop for our husbands.
--Yes, sure. I'll pick you up around 4 tomorrow, okay?
--Sure. See you.

--Can I help you?
--Yes. I'd like a nice Christmas tree, please.
