EnglishLingQ - Eating Out, Part 8

Waiter: Well have you made up your minds?

Mary: Yes, I will have bean soup to start.

Then I will have roast chicken.

Waiter: That is a fine choice. What about you?

Peter: I'll have a salad to start and then I will try your spaghetti special.

Waiter: Would you like some wine with your meal?

Mary: Yes please. Please bring us a half-bottle of your house red wine.

Waiter: A half-bottle of the house red coming right up. I will also bring you some bread. Is there anything else you would like?

Mary: No that is all, thank you. -- So, tell me Peter, what are your parents doing these days?

Peter: My Dad is still working. My Mom is enjoying working in the garden.

Mary: It seems they are both busy. Are they in good health?

Peter: Yes they are. How about your parents?

Mary: My parents are away visiting their relatives in the East.

Peter: Which relatives live there?

Mary: My mother's brother and sister live there. I am quite close to my uncle and aunt.
