1,079 - Receiving Letters and Packages in the Mail

February 20th, 2015

Episode 204 of 489 episodes

Please, Mr. Postman, look and see if there’s a letter in your bag for me. Find out if there is or there isn’t in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:19 Explanations: 3:13 Fast dialog: 15:22 Celeste: Did the mail come? Anwar: Yes, you got some letters and a package. Celeste: Oh, I hope that one of those envelopes has the photos Naomi promised us. Did you notice the postmark? Anwar: No, but they’re sitting in the hall. Celeste: Those photos are overdue and should have been delivered days ago. Naomi thought she might not have put enough postage on the envelope, but I thought it must have been misdelivered. Anwar: You can look at it yourself. The package you received was sent using overnight delivery. Celeste: I wonder who sent it and why they sent it using expedited service. Anwar: I don’t know. Why don’t you go look? Celeste: I wonder if there’s anything perishable in it or that’s time-sensitive in some way. Anwar: I have no idea. There’s also a letter that’s been forwarded from our old address that has delivery confirmation. Celeste: Oh, I wonder what that could be. Anwar: You know what? Celeste: What? Anwar: All of those mysteries can be solved if you just go and open your mail. Celeste: I know, but isn’t it more fun to speculate? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
