Emma (00:02):
You are listening to dialogues in English with Dialogue Frog. Luke, you're looking a bit tired today.

Luke (00:11):
Yeah, I didn't sleep so good.

Emma (00:13):
Oh, no, I'm sorry. Are you having trouble sleeping?

Luke (00:18):
Yeah, I mostly get really weird dreams.

Emma (00:22):
Weird dreams? Okay.

Luke (00:24):
Yeah.

Emma (00:25):
You dream often?

Luke (00:26):
Yeah. Most every night.

Emma (00:28):
Huh? I hardly dream at all.

Luke (00:30):
Huh.

Emma (00:30):
Or maybe I dream a lot, but I don't remember.

Luke (00:33):
Yeah.

Emma (00:35):
So, what do you do to, to get a better sleep?

Luke (00:39):
Um, I like sleeping, actually I like sleeping in the living room with some ambient noise, and I kind of, uh, I guess, 'cause it feels like the heart of the home that it is more soothing.

Emma (00:53):
Ah, yeah. It's more relaxing or easier to fall asleep in that kind of space.

Luke (00:58):
Mm-hmm.

Emma (00:58):
Compared to your bedroom and your own bed.

Luke (01:01):
That's true. Yep.

Emma (01:03):
So, ambient sounds you say.

Luke (01:05):
Uh-huh.

Emma (01:05):
What kinds of ambient sounds are relaxing to you? There's many different kinds.

Luke (01:10):
Um, fire crackling, which is probably not a good one.

Emma (01:16):
Yeah! 'Cause if your house is really on fire, you won't be alert to that.

Luke (01:20):
Yeah.

Emma (01:20):
Kind of scary. It is comforting though, 'cause it has like a cozy, warming vibe to it.

Luke (01:27):
Yeah. Um, what else is there? There's uh, rain sounds that are good too. Probably 'cause my brain thinks it's putting out the fire.

Emma (01:37):
Oh there you go. You need a, you need an ambient sound that's like rain and fire at the same time.

Luke (01:43):
Yeah.

Emma (01:43):
There you go. What about video game music? Do you find video game music soothing?

Luke (01:48):
I, yeah. Uh, depends on which video game like-

Emma (01:51):
Sure.

Luke (01:52):
-if it's a hyper, fast-paced running game.

Emma (01:56):
Oh yeah.

Luke (01:56):
Then it's like, gets the adrenaline going, but, but soothing ones. Um, there's a lot of soothing games out there now that work perfect for that.

Emma (02:08):
Yeah. I can see that. Well, I hope you get a better sleep tonight.

Luke (02:13):
Thanks. Appreciate that.

Emma (02:16):
