July 29th, 2016

Episode 433 of 489 episodes

Please don’t go! Please don’t go! Listen first to this episode about telling people to go away. Slow dialog: 1:12 Explanations: 3:21 Fast dialog: 16:34 Joshua: Beat it and don’t come back! Rosa: What’s all the noise? Joshua: It’s the neighborhood kids. All I want to do on this sunny afternoon is sit out on the porch and enjoy the day. But those neighborhood kids keep coming around and making all kinds of noise. Hey you, shoo! Rosa: They’re just trying to get a rise out of you. Maybe if you ignore them and stop waving them off and telling them to run along, they’ll go away on their own. Joshua: If I don’t tell them to get lost, they’ll sit here in front of my house and clown around. They’ll make so much noise it’ll wreck my peace and quiet. Hey, I see you. Take a hike! Rosa: I think I know what to do to get you that peace and quiet. I’ll be right back. Joshua: Where are you going? Rosa: I’m going to get a plate of cookies for those kids. Joshua: Are you crazy? Are you rewarding those rowdy troublemakers with cookies?! Rosa: It’s a bribe and it always works. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
