To listen, press play in the audio player.
You're listening to Dialogue Frog's short English conversations and today we are in a wintery kind of state here and, uh, we're longing for summer vacations.
You know, I do miss the 100 and 10 degree weather.
Ah, I don't know if I'd go that far, but yeah, some warmth definitely sounds good.
I-I want I want desert. I want dry air and I want cactus. That's what I want.
Is that what you're asking for for Christmas?
An all all uh expenses paid trip to the desert. I won't even be particular about which desert. There's lots to choose from.
Okay. 'Cause I was thinking, I could probably wrap the dry air. I don't know about the other two, though.
If, if I get a a present, that's just a box of air, I'll know who it's from.
Yeah, so, um, what's your favorite memory of- from summer vacations?
Ah, that's kind of tricky. I, I don't know that my vacations are normal.
Most years I like to go on like an archeological excavation.
So like to to go out and participate in an archaeology dig.
And so that's usually a lot of work. It's not like you go to some town and look at famous buildings or go to museums.
It's, yeah, I, I would guess it's slightly more intense than the average summer vacation.
You seem to find it refreshing, though. Like you seem to come back refreshed.
So it's still a vacation even though you are.
I'm kind of one of those weird people. I like to work. Like, I like to do things. If I were to just like sit on a beach and-
-look at the ocean. I would probably be done with that after about 3 minutes.
Now, if I were excavating something on that beach, that's a different story.
Yeah. I'm the other way around, where I do as little work as possible. I don't really have anything else to follow with that. That's just, that's just me.
There-there is, there is something to be said for like, relaxing during a vacation. That's really what a vacation is for.
And so, if that is what relaxation is to you, and that's what relaxation is to a lot of people.
That's why there's lots of beachfront houses and villas and-
-all that kind of stuff.
Maximum vacation comfort and relaxation.
It's true. I think my memory of summer vacations is always based around those like frozen fruit pop things that you'd put you put in the freezer and you'd have like a grape flavor and then like a candy ap- candy green.
Oh, yeah, like your generic summer-
-like fruit pop.
Tastes like summer.
Yep. All right. Well, it's not summer yet, but it will be eventually. And hopefully by then we'll still be doing Dialogue Frog.
Thanks for listening to Dialogue Frog. We'll see you next week.
