Dr. Anderson: No. But I wanted TV in the hotel room at night.
Marie: Did you take some nice walks around London?
Dr. Anderson: Actually, no. I sat in a chair for four days.
Marie: Dr. Anderson, that doesn't sound like a very nice vacation.
Dr. Anderson: Vacation? I went to London for business, not for vacation. I met doctors from all over the world. We talked about new medicines,a nd I gave two speeches. I always ate at the hotel restaurant. So I actually never left the hotel.
Marie: But, Dr. Anderson, you were in London and you didn't see the city. 
Dr. Anderson: No. But it looked nice from the airplane.
